Getting started with Windows Mobile apps and Compact framework

 

First Checking the pre-requisites and creating a basic Hello world application :

1. Check whether your mobile device has “Active Sync” Installed.

2. Now to install “Microsoft .NET Compact framework V3.5” in your mobile device.

Go to the path : “C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v3.5\WindowsCE”

and you can c the list of cab files…

I have installed the selected one… Since mine is a Windows mobile and Armv4i – Hence “NETCFv35.wm.armv4i.cab” is the right file for me.

Check this with urs and copy the appropriate cab file to ur device storage card and click to install the “Microsoft .NET Compact framework V3.5” in your mobile device.

3. Create a test Application on compact framework and execute in the mobile device.

Goto ur Visual studio 2008 SDK and File -> New –> Project –>

Now a prompt message appears… Check all as per the colored boxes…

New project will appear in your solution explorer and click on the forms and write ur own application…

 

In the toolbox, drag and drop the label control and set its properties text to “Hello World”.

Now as usual build ur project and a .exe file will be placed in the “\bin\Debug” folder. Copy the .exe file to ur device and click to execute.
