  • Yes, it is.

    Check .NET Compact Framework

  • Depends on what your code use, and the difference between .Net CF and .Net. Ask in the Smart Device Development forums if you need help on this.

    Basically, yes. But you would need to carefully design your layers. Some components can't be used in PDA and vice versa.

  • When I create a new C# project in VS2005 I have the choice of windows or smartdevice.

    I assume I select smartdevice here, I need to build for Windows Mobile 6 Professional running on some kind of mobile phone PDA. Which option should i select Pocket PC2003, Smartphone 2003, Windows CE5.0.

    Will I need to install the .net framework on the device?

    What happens if I try to run an app that was built for XP on it?
