That isn't going to help you. While the Win32 exceptions will be
caught and thrown there will be no unwinding of the stack, i.e.
destructors for automatic variables will *not* be called. So the code
will not work correctly in case of an exception.

The approach I've seen is to call abort() instead of throwing, which
is probably not a very good one.

Not with EVC++. I'm afraid it's something of a waste of time to try
to compile standard C++ code with it.

There has been some work to port GNU C++ to WinCE but it is
incomplete and so far as I know only covers SH3 and MIPS whereas
the most popular architecture for WinCE now seems to be ARM.
