Hi,


For native development in eVC++, MSDN is the place to start.
"http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dv_vcce4/html/evorimicrosoftembeddedvisualcplsplsfundamentals.asp"

this is also quite ok from wirelessdevnet "http://www.wirelessdevnet.com/channels/pda/training/vcce.html"

Then ofcourse there is www.pocketpcdn.com which specifically has a lot of articles and resources. both on eVC++ and the .NET Compact framework.
ad ofcource if you have any doubts experts-exchange itself is very handy.

Regards,
Balu

First off The mpx200 is is not using Windows CE its called Windows Mobile which is based on CE.

Youll wanna look at the "Smart Device SDK" using Visual Studio.

Heres a Tutorial

Windows CE and Windows Mobile are different products though Windows CE is base for Windows Mobile.
For details on Windows CE  refer
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/wceintro5/html/wce50oriWelcomeToWindowsCE.asp
For development tools you need for Windows CE refer
http://msdn.microsoft.com/embedded/usewinemb/ce/cedevtools/default.aspx

For Windows Mobile you need
Visual Studio + Windows Mobile SDK/Smartphone SDK
ActiveSync
etc.

You can use .Net Compact Framework for Windows CE development.

>is it required to learn the kernel and api's........

Nope.  Using Visual Studio (.NET), you can write some robust applications in a very similar way you would as a Windows app without relying on the Kernel or API's.  However, there may be a few calls you will have to make for special functions.

See my prior post on the book I suggested, it really helped me.  Also some of the links to the MS sites are helpful, of course.

For another starter, download (or order) the CDROM from here:

As far as the basics: (.NET Perspective)

1. You need to know how to program in VB or C# (Or some other .NET language)
2. You need to have Visual Studio (Suggest 2005)
3. You will need to download/install some SDK's for the type of target device you want to test with
4. You need to have a newer PC with at least 1GB of RAM and plenty of power to run the VS and Handheld emulator when testing
5. You should have a real Handheld for testing (in addition to the emulator)
6. You should get some sample code and work through some tutorials, books, etc. as there are some quirks that differ from Windows development

That should get you going...
