If you want to develop applications based on .NET Compact Framework 2 for VPA Compact II mobile phone you may have some deployment difficulties.
The named device runs Windows Mobile 5.0, but the installed .NET Framework is version 1.1.

When you try to deploy the application, first the .NET Framework 2.0 will be deployed. Unfortunately, it is often the case that deployment of CF just fails. I tried many different ways and found out the solution.
First, be sure that you do not run ActiveX over Bluetooth. This is because ActiveX on mobile device takes too much RAM and the installation process always fails. Instead, copy the installation cab file from C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v2.0\WindowsCE\wce500\armv4i\ to the mobile device.
Finally, close ActiveSync at the mobile device and double click on the cab file, which is now on the device.

That's all.
