Downloading GapiDraw

Begin by downloading the latest distribution package. The executable file contains the installation package, and all files have been virus scanned by an antivirus application. You can install GapiDraw to any folder. If you choose the default folder C:\GapiDraw42, GapiDraw will create the following folder hierarchy:

    ....project (if you have a source code license)

If you want a quick demonstration of what GapiDraw can do, you can start the file "Breakout.exe", located in the folder Samples\Win32\Breakout\vs2008-pc\Release. You should now see the Breakout sample application running at 640x480 pixels on your desktop.

Breakout running in the Windows Mobile 5.0 emulator.

To find out how the game Breakout was created, you should begin by reading through the Getting Started tutorial, followed by our step-by-step guide to create the Breakout application.

You can also copy the file Breakout.exe to your Windows Mobile device from the folder "vs2008-mobile". Use the folder vs2008-mobile\Pocket PC 2003 (ARMV4) if you have a Pocket PC 2003 device, or vs2008-mobile\Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK (ARMV4I) if you have a Windows Mobile 5.0 or newer device.



The installer does not contain an option for uninstalling GapiDraw. All files are placed in the installation folder. Remove that folder and the registry key "HKLM->SOFTWARE->Develant Technologies ", and everything added to your system is removed.
