  1. Install Embedded Visual C++ 4.0

  2. Install the SDK for the device(s) you want to develop for.

Embedded Visual C++ 4.0

This is a basic installation that will create multiple root directories on your system. I suggest letting it do so, using the default installation paths.

Microsoft Windows SDK for Pocket PC 2002

This will install just the SDK for Pocket PC 2002 devices. All of the new devices (Pocket PC 2003 / Second Edition, Windows Mobile 5.0) support and run applications that are developed for Pocket PC 2002.

Embedded Visual Tools 3.0

The tools include the following SDK’s
  • Windows CE Platform SDK (H/PC Pro)

  • Windows CE Platform SDK (Palm-size PC 1.2)

  • Microsoft Windows Platform SDK for Pocket PC
It also contains Embedded Visual Basic 3.0 and Embedded Visual C++ 3.0
