    I have a windows SDK dll and C++ program which controls an IP based hardware device under windows over IP.

    I'm considering using touch interfacing and am unsure how feasible it might be to convert to android, as its a windows dll and based upon C++.

    As I don't have access to the SDK source for the DLL, I am somewhat restricted in what might be possible.

    Anyone provide some advice on this? Possible? What should I look at?

    Thanks in advance.

    Unfortunately, you don't give much information about what your C++ actually interacts with and more importantly what the 'windows SDK dll' in question is actually doing for you.

    If the DLL is doing DCOM communication against some proprietary windows protocol in the bowels of some Windows-centric hardware device then you're probably going to give up or write a stupidly large amount of complicated code to get it working. If the code is interfacing a well known socket based communication stream being controlled through GDI (or the like) then porting that app to android should be reasonably straight forward assuming you know C++/Java well enough.

    Without actually knowing what DLL and what API calls you're looking to port, its impossible to give any kind of reasonable answer beyond what I've said.
