Windows CE to Windows mobile

We have at present Datalogic memor hand held computers with Windows CE Version 5.0
Would it be possible to convert our hand helds to Windows Mobile Version 6.1.
This is to enable a software update we are installing.The hand held spec tells us we can have either option but we need to know how to convert from CE Version 5.0 to Mobile Version 6.1.Our software supplier has advised us he is not able to convert our handhelds.
Yours Hopefully.

You cannot...

Unlike with desktop operating systems, mobile operating system upgrades can only be provided by the device manufacturer. Thus, unless Datalogic provides a WM6.1 upgrade for your devices, it is not possible to upgrade.

Sorry.

No.

Such an upgrade is from the handheld maker. Handhelds are not like desktops and laptops when it comes to the OS.

But let's ask more about "support." While I don't support for all WM platforms my app still works fine on the older machines. What they may need from you is a machine for the app developer to debug if there is an issue.

Define "support." And some forget that this does not mean the app doesn't work.
