RTC Client API Version Comparison

Other versions of this page are also available for the following:

Windows Mobile Not SupportedWindows Embedded CE Supported


In general, the Windows Embedded CE implementation of the RTC Client API supports the same functionality and uses the same external API as the desktop implementation. However, there are some differences.

The following table shows the corresponding desktop RTC version for each Windows Embedded CE release that contains the RTC Client API.

The documentation for the desktop implementations is often organized by version, and understanding which desktop version matches which Windows Embedded CE version can make it easier to use the desktop RTC documentation in addition to the Windows Embedded CE RTC documentation.

The documentation for the desktop version of RTC is available at this Microsoft Web site.

For more information about Windows Embedded CE and desktop differences, see Comparing Windows Embedded CE and Desktop RTC Implementations.
