A Visual CE form can be run on the desktop. Just set up synchronization for the tables the form uses, navigate to the form on the desktop, and double click it. When the form runs on the desktop, it reads/writes its data to the database identified by the synchronization settings. But what about the file pathnames? Throughout the form there are file pathnames for things like background images for scribble boxes or forms to jump to. These file pathnames are expressed in terms of the file system on the handheld, not the desktop. Here's how to handle this.
