Is it possible to "downgrade" Pocket PC 2003 to Pocket PC 2002?

Hi.
Sorry for my English, hope you `ll understand me.
I begin to write some application for Pocket PC using Embedded Visual
Basic.
At first I used device with Pocket PC 2002 and that was OK.
Now I am using another device with Pocket PC 2003 (IPAQ 1930).
But the problem is:
I can not use de *** in Embedded Visual Basic, so I have to debug my
application using MsgBox-s.
I have read somewhere that Microsoft now does not support Embedded
Visual Basic- that is why I can not work with de *** with Pocket PC
2003.
Can I "downgrade" Pocket PC 2003 to Pocket PC 2002?
(I have Pocket PC 2002 Upgrade Utility v-1.05)
How? Is this ?downgrade" reversible? May be you know another
solution?
Thank you.

I am not sure if it is reversible. The installer probably checks the current
version.


I think so. You can try overriding the platform id in the registry. The key
is HKLM\Windows CE Tools\Platform.
