Question

What applications or services are required on my computer to support Mobile ADF samples?

Answer

All samples included with ArcGIS Server Mobile ADF are provided as Visual Studio .NET 2005 solutions written in C#. To use them, first build the solution using Visual Studio.

There are Windows samples and Windows Mobile samples included in the SDK. To use a Windows Mobile sample, deploy that sample to either a mobile device or to an emulator.

The following are required:
- ArcGIS Server (Advanced Enterprise edition)
- ArcSDE, if planning to edit geodatabase data
- IIS
- Visual Studio 2005 Standard or better. VS Express does not support .NET Compact Framework development.
- Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Pocket PC or Smartphone, depending on the platform being used.
- ActiveSync 4.2 or better

The easiest way to use the Mobile ADF samples is to deploy them first to Visual Studio Device Emulators. Make sure to set up the emulator properly for an optimum connection to the Mobile Service.
