  • It depends on the platform you want to run it on. If the platform supports .NET Framework, it should work just the way you've developed it. If it supports .NET Compact Framework, you'll need to install that on the device and develop your application for .NET Compact Framework. If the device supports .NET MicroFramework, you should develop your application for that flavor of .NET Framework.
    If it does not support any version of .NET Framework, then you'll need to write your app in unmanaged code.
