Windows CE Software Development

Windows CE is Microsoft's operating system offering for embedded applications. It provides the developer a subset of the WIN32 API supported by Windows 98 and Windows NT, as well as additional functionality for mobile applications and small systems.

This presentation will discuss the spectrum of Windows CE platforms and applications and the major functionality provided in the supported API. The development environment will be introduced, and a sample application will be developed and loaded to a handheld PC.
