AJAX and IE in Windows CE/Mobile/Pocket PC

I am currently developing an application that requires AJAX-enabled browsers to work. The application - so far - has been tested on PC-based browsers and works correctly. However, when ran on windows ce - based mobile computers (with IE) I get a automation server cannot create object and the ActiveX object is not created.

I've tested it on:
Intermec 730B: Pocket PC 4.20.0 (build 14053)
Intermec CK31: Windows CE.NET 4.20.0

I've tried "activating" the ActiveX object using:

None of the above seems to work.
The systems mentioned above, have Pocket Internet Explorer installed. Is there a way to get past this problem?

I don't think Pocket IE or Windows has Microsoft XMLHttp Component.

Alternatively you can try using RemoteScripting

I've checked with Microsoft and they claim that they do support XMLHTTP, but not in all versions. And what do you mean by remote scripting? Server-side scripting perhaps?

I don't know if this is what you are looking for but, I assume this is because in my experience, your systax may be off.

Post your code segment, could be helpfull.

Thanks, but I got my answer from the the manufacturer. It has nothing to do with syntax. It is just not supported, but they will provide a patch for it...

Thanks for the replies, I'll ask for the question to be deleted.
