  • I have not used the Micro framework for several years, so I'm not sure how much work it might be.  However, these were not intended to be parallel, just somewhat similar.  You will not be able to do anything other than cut-and-paste actual code -- and then modify it to meet the more restrictive environment of the micro framework.  UI cannot be ported, so you will have to recreate all UI elements.

    I'd speculate that you really need to use your Compact Framework code as a guideline, and treat the actual Microframework project as a new design.
