  1. Hi All,
    I am writing code for handheld device using WinCE.

    My problem is, i have to read/write a text file from/to a desktop machine to the handheld device, which is connected through serial port of desktop machine.

    please help me anyone to find out the solution of it.

    I have tried to connect the device to the desktop machine but how to read a specified file which is on desktop location from here.

    Do you want the device to read a file from the PC or the PC to send a file to the device? These two approaches are fundamentally different.

    If you want the device to read that file without user interaction, then you have to write a special device driver or a monitor program that would listen for requests from your device and provide the file.
