Old device running Windows CE 5 and want to install a program on it onto a more modern device RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an old PDA running Windows CE 5.0 with a program on it we use regularly at work. I am looking for a way to install Windows CE 5, or just that program on a modern device such as a tablet, phone or even computer.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  • You will need to talk to the software company that created the application.  Windows CE is Win32 and not compatible with the latest devices that run Windows 10.  To run on a newer device, the code will likely need to be reworked and recompiled.
