    Hi Erel,

    since so many users had (and still have) problems activating the .Net CF2 support (me too...) would't it be good to approach a different way of selecting this feature?

    I'm thinking of something like this:
    - provide the Basic4ppc.exe.config and Dbasic.exe.config with the default installation
    - add a menu option to the IDE (dektop and device) to switch between the both .Net versions (.Net CF 1 should be still the default for new projects)
    - save this option to the .sbp file, so every project remembers it's state
    - when a project is compiled and .Net CF2 is selected, automatically generate a ApplicationName.exe.config

    What do you think?

    I think it is a very good idea and I will try to add it.
    For now, I think that if you follow the simple instructions here: www.basic4ppc.com/netcf2.html everything will work fine.
    Most of the problems happen when users only install .Net CF 2.0 and do not read the other steps required.
