The BSP software is offered under the MS-PL license and as such you are pretty much free to do with it what you please.
As a common courtesy I only ask the following:
  • You do not repost this software anywhere else
  • You do not offer this software for sale.

If you find this software helpful, please support further development and testing by donating $25

You are also still bound by the terms of Microsoft's Platform Builder and Windows CE operating system licenses.
See http://www.microsoft.com/about/legal/useterms/default.aspx for licensing and terms of use information.

This software is fully functional. It does not incorporate any "time bombs" or any "deactivation" device.
With this BSP you can construct Windows CE images incorporating the components of your choosing.
It is distributed as a binary BSP and support is limited. I will do my best to fix bugs and answer questions when time permits.

I am also available for limited contract engineering.
A premium BSP with full source code is also available.
Contact me through my account on this site if you wish more information.
