Use/Create DLL for Windows CE


I'm creating an application for Windows CE. I made the application foe Windows XP already, and my application uses a 3-rd party DLL.
Now I have the problem, that the DLL is not made for Windows CE.

Is there an easy way to convert/compile the DLL for Windows CE, giving that I already have the specific LIB-File?

No, you need the source code. The import library is just a stub used by the loader to pull in the actual module.

Ok, thank you.

Is there then an easy way to import a VC++ Workspace into an emdedded VC++ Project?
Good question. You should be able to change the build target easily if eVC++ is installed on your system, just go to the project settings and change the 'Platform'. However, not all APIs that are available for XP do have working CE counterparts, you'll need to check the docs on that if you encounter problems.

I have installed eVC++, but then my VC++ .Net dtill only shows as Plattform options Active(Win32) or Win32. Or is this already what I want?
Isn't eVC++ integrated with VisualStudio? If it has its separate IDE, isn't there an option to open and convert a VC++ workspace?

eVC++ has it's separate IDE. And no option to open and convert...

I'll try to see what I can do.
Thanks anyway
