Smart Device Extension Required

P: n/a
Dear ALL,

I would like to say firstly that I followed Microsoft links and I do
know that they want to push you towards buying .Net 2003. I can not afford
this and I will not be force into it. I spent time saving for an Visual
Studio .Net 2002 and my wife will not allow me to upgrade.

I have purchased a iPaq Pocket PC to replace my Visor (which I
programmed a lot using AppForge) but now want to rewrite some of me apps
using VB.Net. I am aware of Embedded Visual Tools (VB 3) and Embedded
Visual C++ 4 (learning is required).

Someone out there must have the SDE add-in that will work on my existing
Visual Studio.Net 2002., again I can not upgrade to 2003 or use the Trail
version.

Expect this is another Microsoft tactic of sucking us smaller developers
dry of resources.

Any help is appreciated.

There is no version which will work with VS.NET 2002. There was a beta
version of the SDE more than one year ago, but it must not be used any
more (and it was not very stable).

How much is an upgrade for 2002 -> 2003?

Please don't make excessive use of X-posts, even not to /warez/ groups.

Hi,

All of this is AFAIK.

I don't know of any SDE that is available. There was a beta version, but it
isn't downloadable any longer.

Microsoft offered the upgrade to 2003 from 2002 for $29 during most of last
year (for at least 6 months). However, it is my understanding that this
inexpensive upgrade offer expired a couple of months ago.

That is correct. The "Smart Device Extensions" have become the smart device
programmability features in Visual Studio .NET 2003. The early beta version
was released as a plug-in to Visual Studio .NET 2002, but the final version
is only available as part of Visual Studio .NET 2003.
