  • I have seen reports that the following is possible:

    Under VS2005, the Compact Framework SDK assemblies reside at E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\CompactFramework\WindowsCE. This folder contains System.Net.IrDA.dll.  Reference this in your winforms app.  I have not tried this.

  • I am using VS2003 and here when i add reference to System.Net.IrDA.dll in  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\v1.0.5000\Windows CE, i get the  message  saying that this path would be added to the project's  ReferencePath property which changes the references to System, System.Data etc.

    Can this be done in VS2003?. Thanks.
