Developing apps for Microsoft Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5

19 Nov 2013

General information and technical reference regarding Microsoft Windows Embedded Handheld (WEH, formerly Windows Mobile) 6.5.3 is provided starting at this website.

 

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsembedded/en-us/windows-embedded-handheld-6-5.aspx

 

As linked from that website, the “Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit” (DTK) is compatible with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.

More information for getting started is provided at these web pages.

 

 

Our own custom APIs and developer tools are listed at these web pages.

 

 

When developing a new app user interface, we recommend using the Resco UI-Elements Framework.

If writing or porting an app that uses the general .NET APIs or C++, some technical options for using the latest development tools from Microsoft are described at these web pages.

 

 

If wanting a .NET CF 3.5 compatible app to run on WEH 6.5, Android (such as

Cedar Tree products or Android 2.3 AOSP on the SDG Rampage 6), and maybe other platform operating systems as well, you could possibly use the Novell Mono cross-platform engine integrated into tools such as described at these web pages.

 

 

Otherwise, you may just want to use HTML5 or some other newer, more general cross-platform (or even cloud-based) programming language and development environment. Some options are described at these web pages.

 

 

If using Java, some compatible JVMs (Java Virtual Machines) are listed at this web page.
