Set up Handheld PC Platform in Embedded Visual C (easy question)
Posted on 2003-11-25
I'm trying to setup a development environment. I want to develop using Embedded Visual C++. I'm developing for an NEC Mobile Pro 900 (Handheld PC with Windows CE .NET Version 4.2). I installed the following.
- MS. Embedded Visual Tools
-Windows CE Platform SDK (H/PC Pro)
-Standard SDK for Windows CE.Net 4.2 - (The Standard SDK contains a subset of common Operating System (OS) APIs that allows an application written to the Standard SDK to run on different Windows CE .NET platforms that have a graphical user interface.)
- MS .Net Framework SDK 1.1
- Windows CE .Net utilities for Visual Studio .Net 2003
- Windows 2000 is the operating system of the laptop that I'm developing on.
When I go into Embedded Visual C++, I go to set Active platform and I don't see H/PC (handheld PC) anywhere. What SDK do I need to install? The Windows CE Platform SDK (H/PC Pro) may not be compatible with Windows CE .NET. How can I set the active platform to be the handheld? Currently the active platform is set to Standard SDK. That's the only option. When i build, I get an error that says that I must install an SDK that is compatible with the standard SDK for Windows CE .Net, then target a shadow platform pertaining to that SDK. What does that mean? please help.
