Question:

How do I upgrade Windows CE?

Cause:

Not applicable

Answer:

Windows CE is burned into the Windows CE computer's ROM; thus, it cannot be
upgraded via a download. The only way to update Windows CE is by purchasing a
new ROM chip from the manufacturer.

Notes:

Some manufacturers' Web pages are confusing in regards to Windows CE upgrades.
One manufacturer has a link to download Windows CE 2.2. This is in fact not
Windows CE 2.2, it is version 2.2 of Microsoft ActiveSync. The latest version
of this Microsoft ActiveSync is 3.0, while the latest version of Windows CE is
2.11.

Microsoft has announced the next release of Windows CE, version 3.0 or Pocket
PC. Windows CE 3.0 is not yet available, as of March 20, 2000.
