Migrating Motorola Windows Mobile 6.5 App from VS 2005 to 2012


  • I have an app written for a Motorola scanner running Windows Mobile 6.5. The project is currently on an old WinXP machine running VS 2005. I remember to get that working, I had to load a few different SDKs for Windows Mobile and Motorola. The Motorola model is MC9100. 

    Does anybody have any experience migrating an app like this one to VS 2012? Know of any reason it won't work on the newer OS and VS version? New PC is running Win7 with VS 2012.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    VS2005 is an such old version of VS, and we don't support it now.

    For your problem the best way is that you need to create your Motorola Windows Mobile App in VS2012 again.

    If you want to migrate it from VS2005, there probably exist some compatibility issues or building erros.

    Best Regards,
