Windows CE .net

I've got to do some VB.net work soon but it has to for a PDA running Windows CE.net.

Not having done this before I need to know what SDK's to download and stuff. I've got Visual Studio .net already installed on Windows XP.

Thanks!

P.S. High points on this because I need answer ASAP

I thought you had to have the Windows CE 2003 Pocket PC SDK installed and stuff? Plus ActiveSync and god knows what else.

Hi Narusegawa,

is it a web application?
if not you can just use everything included in the studio, but make sure that all the classes you use are supported by the compact framework.

I've got no idea what it's to involve yet. The boss is very lax on information, all I know is it's a VB.net app that will need to be written on a PDA most likely running Windows CE. And that it may involve using WAP.

this is what MS has to say about it (vs 2003)

The following sections list requirements for the development computer, the target device, and the connection between the two.

Development Computer
The following items represent possible modifications to Visual Studio .NET requirements.

Available Hard Disk Space
Minimum: 90 MB. Recommended: 150 MB.

RAM
Using the emulator in device projects requires an additional 64 MB of RAM.

Device
The target device must support the platform you are developing with. Visual Studio .NET 2003 supports the Windows CE .NET and Pocket PC platforms.

Approximately 2 MB of RAM are required on the device for the .NET Compact Framework.

Connection
This release of Visual Studio .NET requires the following:

Hardware
A serial or USB cable, as provided by the device manufacturer, to connect a device to the development computer. Before you can use this connection, you must set up the development computer and device according to the instructions provided by the device manufacturer.

Note   For best debugging performance, Ethernet or wireless LAN is recommended.
Software
Microsoft ActiveSync version 3.5, which detects and connects the development computer with the device.
