Currently Pocket Freemind runs well on PDAs but does not run on smartphones throwing the following exception:

PocketFreemind.exe
NotSupportedException

at Microsoft.AGL.Common.MISC.HandleAr()
at System.Windows.Forms.OpenFileDialog..ctor()
at PocketFreemind.frmMain.InitializeComponent()
at PocketFreemind.frmMain..ctor()
at PocketFreemind.Program.Main()

..or similar.

A number of downloaders have stumbled on this problem:
"NotSupportedException (at first start)"
https://sourceforge.net/projects/pocketfreemind/forums/forum/547986/topic/1948425/index/page/1

and Artifact 2673321:

dotNET compact framework supports common dialogs, but not on smartphones.
Hence, pocket freemind is currently not supported on the device.

However there exists a common dialog replacement, tGetFile.dll, that also works on PDAs.

How hard would it be to port Pocket Freemind to use this?
