Supported Classes in the .NET Compact Framework

The .NET Compact Framework supports about 30 percent of the namespaces and classes of the full .NET Framework, and is about 8 percent of its size. To keep the size small, only the most important classes and members are supported.

For information about how to use the class library to determine .NET Compact Framework support and versioning, see How to: Find Supported Members of the .NET Compact Framework in the Class Library.

The .NET Compact Framework does not support the following technologies:

  • Server functionality


  • Remoting

  • Reflection Emit

  • C++ development

  • J# and JSL development

The .NET Compact Framework does not currently support code access security.
