I have eVC 3.0, eVC 4.0 SP2 and VS.NET 2003 all installed on my laptop (ah,
the curse of doing demos :) and they all run fine. Just make sure that you
install the SDKs *after* you've installed all of the developer tools.
Applications written using eVC 3.0 for pre-Pocket PC 2003 devices generally
run just fine on PPC 2003.
