yes, you can surely run your app on MC55, just ensure you have required cf.net installed, maybe sqlce if you use it etc

OK, Im using visual studio 2008 vb.net and my app just connects to sql server 2008.

In the device emulator manager i use windows mobile 5.0 pocket pc r2 emulator, i then connect it through microsoft active sync.

My boss is asking me if the mobile device emulator ive developed will be able to run on the MC55 and i wasnt sure, so when i put this to release mode how do i get it onto the MC55?

you have 2 options:

- the same way as you're doing with emulator (I assume you have compiled the code to Any CPU), ie connect your MC55 via active sync, then select "Windows Mobile Professional Device" and deploy the application; VS should do the rest, ie install proper cf.net version, sqlce etc

- you can create CAB file project (available under Other Project Types -> Setup and Deployment -> Smart Device...CAB)
add there Project Output from your app and it will pick up all dependencies; then copy cab to MC55 and install it

your app depends on cf.net version, so if there is anything specific to e.g. 3.5 then you need to install it of course. WM6.x devices have cf2.0 and sqlce 3.0 preinstalled, so basically I'd advise you just try to run your app on the device from VS2008.

if you don't use local db then you probably don't need sqlce.
