Hi,

I've been developing Windows Forms applications for PC with no problem, but using the same license key for Windows CF development for pocket PC I get a "license key invalid" exception, even on emulators.

Is this usual? Do I need a different type of license for mobile development?

Thanks,
Steven

Yes, it's difference license for Pocket PC and Windows. In the mail you received with the Windows license you should have a Pocket PC as well.
If the license has expired you can get another one for the Pocket PC.

Thanks for the reply.

We don't have a license key for Pocket PC in the e-mail. Also, the license has not expired as I am still using the key for PC based development in .NET.

Would it be possible to get a key for Pocket PC? Is it necessary to upgrade the type of license?

Many thanks.

Steven

Ah, you mean you have bought a license? I thought you used a trial license (in that mail there are keys for all platforms)
It is necessary to buy a separate Pocket PC license.

OK, I see two potential paths forward.

1. Obtain a trial license for mobile development in addition to our existing paid for license for PC. Is this possible?

or

2. Pay for the additional mobile license. Can you give details of cost and how to obtain?

Thanks,
Steven

1. Just request a trial license where you download BlueTools. (http://www.franson.com/bluetools/download.asp?platform=net)

2. The license is €99 or $129 for a standard license, which cannot create services (http://www.franson.com/bluetools/purchase.asp?license=standard&platform=net).
A Pro license that can create services cost €149 or $199. (http://www.franson.com/bluetools/purchase.asp?platform=net&license=pro)
