Perhaps the included emulator will be updated to support windows mobile 2003? Too bad I only have a modem connection. 2003-12-30 6:42 am eVC4 has been available for a LONG time now, this is probably just eVC 4.0 SP3 or something. And yes, this is an excellent tool. 2003-12-30 7:08 am hm. yeh. this is some well-aged news. 2003-12-30 8:22 am Can this be used as a C/C++ IDE for Windows or Linux? 2003-12-30 2:40 pm No it only targets WinCE based systems like Pocket PC etc. 2003-12-30 2:44 pm Wow They really are giving it away! Got 571 KB/sec with FireBird in XP and it completed. Which is often not the case when i download from the Giant. 2003-12-30 3:16 pm They have other stuff there too, like images for emulation and SDKs 2003-12-30 3:34 pm Is it free or you have to pay to use it ? Thanks 2003-12-30 3:42 pm Its free. You don’t have to pay MS anything. 2003-12-30 4:54 pm Yes, it’s free and has been available for a long time. It doesn’t support Pocket PC 2002 systems, so far as I know (you need the embedded Visual C++ 3.0 for that). I don’t know if it supports Pocket PC 2003, but notice it’s only useful for the very newest Windows CE .NET powered devices. I don’t know what current devices are .NET powered at this point. 2003-12-30 5:46 pm Pocket PC 2003 is based on CE.Net 4.2 You can use EVC4 to develop native applications for this platform. Alternatively use Visual Studio to develop for the .Net Compact Framework. Either way the SDKs and Emulator images are free. It’s a way of promoting the platform.
