Thanks for this info, ms umpc display emulator is easy to use, simply intercepts all of win32 functions.

More about ms umpc is detours, detours is a library for instrumenting arbitrary win32 functions on x86, x64, and IA64 machines. Detours intercepts win32 functions by re-writing the in-memory code for target functions. the detours package also contains utilities to attach arbitrary dll and data segments (called payloads) to any win32 binary.

Intel just released a tool to help developers determine how portable software applications are to the varied UMPC devices. Please go to learn the tool information and get start at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/ultra-mobile-pc-evaluator-tool

It appears this tool is no longer available. I'm actually interested in a device emulator on Linux for MIDs. Can you point me to where I might find this?

I double checked the links in this thread today and found them to all be available. Can you be more specific, pgoodall? Which tool couldn't you find?
