Ah, that's a detail I've missed.
Right, this may be a problem.

Exactly. The cycle is 1) compile 2) deply on a device 3) run

OK, that should be easy.
Generally, I need to change the regression.py script to only run tests.

Remote testing for Windows CE platform would need to be based on
platform-specific regression.py script.
There is a dedicated API (RAPI ) for operating device remotely, from
Remote regression tests run for Windows CE may look as follows:
1. regression_wince.py script runs on desktop machine
2. The script uploads Boost binaries on WinCE device(using RAPI)
3. Execute regression tests runner on a device (using RAPI call
4. Download file(s) with regression tests results
5. Process tests results on desktop
6. Upload results on the Web
This scenario seems to be feasible using Python and Python port for
Windows CE .
