Development Environment?

May 29, 2011 at 10:16 PM

I'm interested in developing some .NET CF 1.0 apps for an HP Jornada 680.  In all truthfulness, these apps wont be used outside of my own personal needs. However, I'm hoping someone would point me in the right direction here.
I've successfully installed the .NET Compact Framework 1.0 with SP3 on the Jornada using the appropriate processor specific .cab found here.
I've installed Visual Studio 2003, and I'm having problems targeting Windows CE 2.11, I've tried building .cab's and using the *.WCE4.SH3.CAB to deploy the application, however I'm getting an error stating "'My App Name' is not a valid Windows CE application."
If anyone could give me some advice here I'd really appreciate it!

Ok, so after some more searching I stumbled upon another post here stating that I should try renaming my binary to have an extension of .net so that it is executed properly by the framework; due to older versions of CE not being able to understand .NET assemblies.

This worked for me!
