I presume you have a RhoEv1

I presume you have a RhoEv1 app and you'd like to package it up with RhoStudio to create a cab file for distribution. If this is the case then follow the steps below.

Create a new project in RhoStudio, say myWebApp

Copy your RhoElements version1 files into the myWebApp “Public” folder located in the RhoStudo workspace.

Go to myWebApp project in RhoStudio and edit “rhoconfig.txt” to point it to your new starting page.

(NOTE: there is a bug in version 2 that will override this change so change the file directly by navigatigating to the file located \workspace\myWebApp

CHANGE

# startup page for your application

start_path = '/app'

TO

# startup page for your application

start_path = '/public/myWebApp.html'

Save the file

Go to myWebApp project in RhoStudio and remove the default tool bar in “application.rb”

by  uncommenting the line below

FROM

     #@@toolbar = nil

TO

     @@toolbar = nil

Save all and you’re done.

Checkout the link below for workaround to run your app in the Simulator.

If you have VS2008 and its WM SDKs installed and paths identified in RhoStudio you are set to build the package by selecting your app (myWebApp) project followed by selecting RhoMobile>Production Build> WM from the toolbar.

Check out http://docs

Check out http://docs.rhomobile.com/rhostudio.tutorial#creating-a-device-build-in-rhostudio - there is a good overview of the build process. The key is making sure you have the proper SDK installed and the path settings are correct. In fact, the entire thread there in the tutorial is a great overview.

Hope that helps!

Understood. Android is there

Understood. Android is there as an example. To target windows mobile, you would define that in Platfrom field of your run configuration. That being said though, your local system would require the target platform SDK which, for windows mobile, is visual studio.

The link provided above is

The link provided above is the .iso for VS2008 pro trial. You'll need to burn it to a dvd or use a direct .iso read utility like isobuster or winrar or something like that.

VS 2008 Express not allow you to install the Windows Mobile SDK...The Trial should work but is limited.

VS2010 does not support Win

VS2010 does not support Win Mobile or CE apps, you need VS2008.
