.NET Compact Framework

Does anyone here do large projects using the CF? Any tips to getting the CF on dozens and hundreds of PPC 2000 and 2002 devices?

I do Pocket PC development all the time and we're still using EVC3 because PPC 2002 is still prevelant and we can't deal taking so much time to deploy the CF to dozens or hundreds of Symbol devices which only support a serial interface.

Have you considered deploying off cards?

How many Symbol devices can you sync at once?
Unless there's a bottleneck of that kind (like, one at a time or something nasty like that) I'd suggest loading the Compact Framework at night.

PLUS...they presumably have to be synched with the desktop or server at some point, and even with a serial connection the Compact Framework is only about a meg and a half, it's not *that* bad.

Cups of coffee could be made while waiting.
