Because the desktop version of DirectX API cannot be installed on Win CE device, Microsoft has provided D3D mobile edition. Unfortunately, DInput (among other DirectX components) is not available for Win CE. Does anyone know of a pre-written API similar to DInput that can be used so that I don't have to create an input (mouse, keyboard, etc) manager from scratch?

What you're looking for is GAPI, which is a lightweight library for raw screen and key input. It's built into all recent CE gizmos.

It's not call-compatible with directx, but it's dirt-simple enough to figure out.
