No, the python shell provided with PythonCE is a GUI only program so you would have to use a different shell, perhaps the default console shell that is used on desktop Windows.

  I managed to get the dll to build using this :
  /defaultlib:coredll.lib /defaultlib:corelibc.lib /nodefaultlib:oldnames.lib /nodefaultlib:libc.lib

  But now i cannot build python.exe because of this :

    Microsoft (R) Program Maintenance Utility   Version 6.00.8168.0
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1988-1998. All rights reserved.

    Building pythoncore
    Building python
            link.exe @C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\nma01216.
    python.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _SipGetInfo referenced in function _PCCESHELL_Window_Thread
    binaries\X86Rel\python.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
    NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'link.exe' : return code '0x460'
    NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft eMbedded C++ 4.0\COMMON\EVC\bin\NMAKE.EXE"' : return code '0x2'

  I guess this is related to the fact i don't build gui support with platform builder ... what i wanted to know, is that if it was possible to build python.exe without gui support ??? As it's useless in my case .

  thank you very much
