Windows and CE app from Same Source Code

Does anyone know if it is possible to develop a c# based app using the .NET Compact Framework, which will run on both Win CE and Windows 7 from the same source code?

    I don't know if you got any answers to you question, but I can tell you that it is possible! ;-)
    I have been working in the logistics-area for 8 years programming complete gui-statemachine-frameworks for warehouse-management-systems running with the exact same code on both Windows CE, Windows Mobile and the PC - even using a shared ORM between all three platforms. I'm using an abstract hardware class and #ifdef-statements to surround the code specific for CE and Mobile hardware-calls. You should also get the machine-name from the device in order to know which platform you're on to dertermine the concrete hardware-class to use. Just let me know if you have more questions or need more information.
