I haven't tried but don't imagine you would find too many  
difficulties doing this. The main python25.exe within the PythonCE  
releases is doing exactly that.

Python25.exe is a thin GUI wrapper over top of the core python  
interpreter which lives within python25.dll. Python25.exe is using  
the standard Python embedding APIs to host the interpreter.

See the online python docs (in particular the "Embedding Python in  
Another Application" section - http://www.python.org/doc/ext/ 
embedding.html) for further details on how to do this.

I would be interested to hear any feedback related to this  
functionality within PythonCE. In theory all you need to download  
from the PythonCE website is the "developer" zip file which includes  
the header and lib files required to build your application.

Hope this helps,
Christopher Fairbairn
