Q: What is the quickest way to begin application development on my ADS development system?

We recommend that for your first application, try using one of CE application wizards. Then transfer the app to an ATA flash card for execution. Here are the steps to create an eVC(+MFC) application:
  1. Open eMbedded Visual C++

  2. Select File->New, then "WCE MFC AppWizard(exe)"

  3. Type a project name and select a location for the project files

  4. Select the "Win32 (WCE ARM)" CPU type

  5. Select Next for the remaining dialogs, accepting the default settings.

  6. In the editor, select the "HPC2000" SDK and "Win32 (WCE ARM) Release" from the toolbar (if HPC2000 isn't available, you'll need to download and install it)

  7. Press F7 to compile (or select Build -> Build .exe).
    You've compiled your first application!

To run your application:
  1. Copy the application (.exe) from the ARMRel\ folder to an ATA card

  2. Insert the ATA card in your development system.

  3. From My Computer, open Storage Card and double-tap the application.
    Your application will open on the device.

For application development and debugging, you will eventually want to take advantage of Microsoft ActiveSync to establish a serial or Ethernet connection for remote debugging.
