.Net developer walking on the dark side. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on an application for a custom Windows CE 5 device.  The application will be written in C# and run in the Compact Framework v2.  I have been asked a question that lead me to write a quick and dirty C program.  The question is how much overhead does the CLR add to our network communications. 
    The issue I have is that I am using VisualStudio 2005 to write this C program.  The only options VS2005 give me for creating a Win32 Smart Device project are Pocket PC and SmartPhone.  Is there a way that I can compile and deploy a C/Winsock program to my custom WinCE device using VS2005?  I have already built the platform image in Platform Builder and deployed that to my test bench.  I have also written and deployed a network benchmark in C#.  Now I wish to write essentially the same benchmark in C.  I have the code to the point that it compile, but will not link as it is not finding various Winsock functions.

    Thanks for your time on this.
