Default Prime95 on x86 Windows CE 5.0/ Pocket PC SE

With Windows CE 5.0 the x86 CPU type is a fully supported as a processor
for small devices.

It had been used in prior versions as the CPU in the emulator that runs on
Windows 2000 Pro and XP Pro to do development/debugging without
having the target hardware, which use ARM (XScale), SH3/SH4, MIPS.

There was some support for x86 as the target CPU in previous versions but it wasn't easily available.

The tool for developing C++ x86 Windows CE 5.0 programs is Embedded Visual C++ 4.0 SP4 which handles native code.
A different tool Visual Studio .NET 2003 is mostly for managed code, using C#

The some of the devices are called Windows Mobile 2003 SE or Pocket PC 2003 SE,
only ones with a x86 CPU will work.

For now the emulator (which uses x86 and runs on 2000 Pro or XP Pro)
is the target.

Post namespaces

When re-compiling Prime95 with .net, namespaces are the main problem you'll encounter. First the security errors have to be delt with(1993).

If you have VS.Net2003, and resource kit CD, make sure you dig through it and find the hidden ComponentOne software, and license.
This adds many usefull components(100mb+) like graphs etc, and help files, that merge with your existing help.
In the help index, there is a great explanation of the namespace workaround/fix.

If you try to compile for small devices, you'll need Windows2000, NTsp3, or NTsp4. I spent many hours trying with XP, which is not on the list.
The windows CE emulation, wants windows2000 sp2, or higher.
BUT WARNING!! sp3, and sp4, have major software compatibility issues.
It's not that sp2 does'nt, but it is much safer at this point in time.

Side note, I got my ulta slow double case test to work on a pocet PC.
Well I have'nt actually tried it out on one yet. This doesn't seem practical so far... keep on it all.
