Default Windows Mobile program can it be converted to work with BB?

Please Login to Remove!

The attached file talks to the ECU in my car. I currently have it running on a windows mobile pda. How could I go about recoding or converting it to run in blackberry OS? What needs to be done? There is also a Palm version of the program if that would be easier to port?

It talks to the ecu via a Serial Cord. I figured it would be just as easy to use a USB to serial cord.

Why in the name of all that is holy would you want to use Windows Mobile in a BlackBerry? Are you aware of the more than 7 gazillion limitations Windows Mobile has? This is precisely the reason why I bought a BB, to get out, stop using, quit Windows...

Do you have any source, or just the binaries? At the very least you'd need to translate to Java and replace the Windows/.NET runtime references with BlackBerry/Java library references.

The way in which questions are formulated help greatly in understanding each topic. I am sorry to have interfered in your thread. I must be the only one in this forum who is not making any sense. Hell, I'll quit the forum alltogether.

Im also interested in trying to convert this to BB OS, It basically a tuning software for DSMs. I know they have figured a way for it to work on Palm and Windows mobile, but I def don't know anything about translating the java to make it work.

i'd forget it, i've not looked at the file but it's a 400k zip so the application is going to be quite involved, you're looking at contracting a company to write a blackberry api java version, not only that it'll involve programming the usb/serial which is outside a lot of blackberry developers experience. you'd need to find a company willing and able to do it plus the costs would be prohibitive.
