    eMbedded Visual Tools 3.0 - When developing applications for Pocket PC 2003, you can no longer use the eMbedded Visual Tools 3.0. However, to target Pocket PC 2000 and 2002, you still need to use this toolset. Fortunately, as you may have to maintain and support existing applications, the new tools are designed to coexist with the old. Therefore you can keep eMbedded Visual Tools 3.0 installed when installing eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0 and Visual Studio .NET.

    eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0 – The Pocket PC 2003 SDK does not support eMbedded Visual Basic development and Pocket PC 2003 devices do not include the eMbedded Visual Basic or ADOCE runtimes in ROM. However, well-behaved eVB applications will be able to run on Pocket PC 2003 devices supported by the following methods:

    OEMs – can choose to put the eVB runtime into their ROM region in Pocket PC 2003 and therefore support eVB applications out of the box.

    Application Developers – can choose to download the eVB runtime from and redistribute it with their application.

    End Users – who try to run an eVB application that is not packaged with the eVB runtime on a Pocket PC 2003 device which does not have the runtime installed, will be faced with a prompt that points them to to download the eVB runtime.

    Note: in order to make the eVB/ADOCE runtime operational on Pocket PC 2003 and support backward compatibility, it had to be rebuilt with the eVB controls and is now a 2.7MB file.
