Unable to start the program : Visual Studio 2008 : Pocket PC 2003 : code ported from evc++ 4.0 using Wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have ported my code written in evc++ 4.0 for ARM to Visual studio 2008. Iam using pocket PC SE 2003 emulator for debugging. But Iam getting message "unable to start the program" when I deploy the application with 6 dll and a exe to Pocket PC. I have compiled the code and it gives no error or warnings. I have also copied the system dlls to windows folder of Pocket PC.they are dlls MFC90ENU, MFC90U, MFC90UD, msvcr90, msvcr90d.  Do I require any other dll?

    I want to know if this error is because of my dll not getting linked or becuase of system dll from microsoft.  I have my own 6 dlls. I have my dlls in folder like %CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES%\libUp and a exe within folder in file explorer - > program files. I cant see  folder for dlls and the dlls developed in the pocket pc emulator folder program files. Is it a successful deployment or i am missing on something. do i need to put additional dlls. If my dlls getting successfully deployed or not. Please also let me know stable version of visual studio 2008 which i should use.

  • Hi ampan75,

    Based on your description, I’m afraid that it is not the correct forum for this issue, since this forum is to discuss:

    Visual Studio WPF/SL Designer, Visual Studio Guidance Automation Toolkit, Developer Documentation and Help System, and Visual Studio Editor.

    Since it is related to the evc++ 4.0, maybe the Visual Studio Smart Device Development - Native C++ Project or Windows Embedded Compact Native Application Development forum would be better for this issue.



    Anyway, I am moving your question to the moderator forum ("Where is the forum for..?"). The owner of the forum will direct you to a right forum.
