I need to pass in the application instance to a p/invoke function call using c# and .net compact framework.  Calling a p/invoke function call to wince would be fine as well.

Thanks,
Craig

Thanks, I am very familar with platform invoke and that article from Microsoft is wonderful as I have used pieces of it in the past.  However, it does not address how to get the application instance (hinstance) that I saw.

"(hinstance) that I saw" where did you see it?

In this function call that works under .Net, but not under .Net CF.  I get an Unsupported Function exception.    The code is as follows:

IntPtr appInstance = System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetHINSTANCE( module );

The return value is the HINSTANCE of the module or -1 if it does not have an instance.

An equivalent WinCE solution would work as well.
