    The primary reason I bought the Treo 700 was to be able to write apps to make my life easier. I tried my first app today but had difficulty testing it in the emulator (the app needs to connect to the Internet and the emulator didn't seem to know how to do that) and couldn't install it on the Treo (apparently, the Treo 700w uses an older .Net framework that one the WIndows Mobile 5.0 SDK uses--???).

    Are there any coders lurking around here that might help? Or is there someplace else where such issues are discussed?

    Any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Here are a few places:

    With Delphi, I can change the .Net CF assemblies I'm compiling against so I rolled back to an older version (1.1 I beileve) instead of .Net 2.0. I'm not sure if/how you can do this with VS 2005 (which is what I assume you're using) since I don't use it for CF development.

    There might be a way to do this and if so, you will be able to run your program on the device itself. Unfortunately, your program might need some of the classes/methods of the newer CF assemblies and this might not help you.

    Internet Connectivity from WM5.0 Emulator *without* ActiveSync
    I've been asked a few times recently about setting up Internet connectivity with the WM5.0 emulator; I usually point people to this post: http://blogs.msdn.com/akhune/archive...16/493329.aspx . However, if you want to do it without ActiveSync..

    1.Install the Virtual Machine Network Driver for Microsoft Device Emulator[1]

    2. In Visual Studio 2005, open Tools>Options. Select Device Tools >
    Devices. Then select the 'Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Emulator' and click the Properteies button

    3. Change Transport in the Emulator properties to 'TCP Connect Transport'. Then click the 'Configure' button. You can then set an IP for the emulator.

    4. Click the Emulator Options button. In the Emulator Properties dialog that opens, select the Network tab. Make certain that the 'Enable NE2000 PCMCIA network adapter and bind to:" box is checked and that you have selected the correct network adapter of your computer.

    5. OK your way out of these dialogs

    6. Start the emulator. Start > Settings > Network Cards

    7. Tap NE2000 Compatible Ethernet Driver. Make sure it is set to 'Use server-assigned IP address. Tap OK (and tap OK on the dialog that comes up).

    8. Make certain that the 'My network card connects to:" drop-down is set to 'The Internet'

    9. Clear any saved state from the emulator and reset it.

    10. Open up Internet Explorer Mobile and enter your URL...

    Regarding .NET -- I think you can upgrade the Treo to the latest framework...the CF2.cab file at this site: http://www.scanr.com/treo/ installs .NET CF2. Incidentally, doing so seemed to increase my available memory by 1-2MB (downside is that it requires 5MB of storage memory). By the way, I am in no way a programmer so I'm not sure if I'm connecting the dots here correctly, so to speak

    When I started my first Windows Moble App, I wrote some code in Vis Studio, and hit the go button. A dialog popped up asking where I wanted to run the code. I selected my treo from the list. It was connected to my pc via bluetooth activesync. Visual Studio automatically deployed the code to my treo, and ran it, even stopping at the breakpoints.
