The obvious workaround for this is simply

  namespace std { using ::type_info; }

Alternatively, and I really suggest that, you could use STLport (the 5.x
series work pretty well under CE) and get a) a mostly complete C++ stdlibrary
and b) several of such workarounds already applied.

I'm not sure if it is still relevant, but I guess so. Other than that,
shared_ptr works for me on MS Windows CE.

Concerning the ticket, I couldn't comment it there. Any time I tried 'preview'
the new page just said
