Hi,

Yeah 90% of apps for WM5 run on WM6... if you have the code you can simply change the target device platform and re-compile your code and test it. But you shouldnt need to do that, I run a few of my WM5 projects on my WM6 phone.

Just be sure to thoroughly test your app. 6 is different then 5 after all. We had a bug in our software from 5 to 6, because of the way 6 mounted usb devices was different then the way 5 did.

Yeah, test it to bits, but there is every chance it will run fine. Generally device specific SDKs and .Net problems are where you will run into issues here
