>>I am unable to deploy it
Are you getting exceptions?

What is the target for the deploying when you run the application?  Emulator or PocketPC device?

Yes the error I get is One or more files from the emulator for windows ce is missing please reinstall.  

This is how I start.

I select smartdevice application from the visual studio options and fill in the app name.
Then I get asked: What platform do you want to target? I select pocket pc

Then: What project type do you want to create? I select windows application, I also tried selecting class library with the same error.

 I then add some buttons and try to deploy, I get an option to choose the device to target I select pocket pc 2002 emulator and click deploy thats when I get the error above. The other option is Pocket pc device, which gives me a general deployement error.  Am I missing a step?

Did you install all the options for the Smart Client when you installed .NET?

I thought so, I checked device manager and there is a  Virtual Pc Application Services but it is cautioned. Also i checked:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\ConnectionManager\Bin

And the emulator for windows ce is there.

I tried reinstalling  it and i get this error:

A driver is installed that causes stability problems with your system. This driver will be disabled. Please contact the driver manufacturer for an update that is compatible with this version of Windows.

After further research I found this:

i found the answer.......... it is because SP2 on XP prevents simulator or
virtual device application from starting.

u need to edit the boot.ini file and remove the noexecute option and add
execute option to it

If this is true how do I do it?

Here is my boot file and I still get the error.  When i try to run the emulator in this file location: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\ConnectionManager\Bin\Emulator.exe.  I get the same error.  I am using vs.net 2003 with asp.net 1.1

[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /noexecute=optin

How do I send you a screen shot of my error?   Every where I look it tells me to change the /noexecute=optin, not real sure what I should change it to.
