How can I connect to a database file on the Pocket PC I am trying to extract contact data from the native application on my Pocket PC, which I believe is called "Pocket Outlook." I've searched for information on this, and everything either points me to using some other database (like SQL Server CE), or to using ActiveSync to sync the Pocket PC with Outlook on a desktop.

Is there any way to connect directly to the native database on a handheld device from a desktop application I'd like to do it through C#. Any help (even a simple connection string) would be greatly appreciated.

POOM is the way to go. It's not exactly a database though so no connection strings.

< xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

WM 5.0 has Microsoft.WindowsMobile.PocketOutlook namespace for that.
