  • you can't install windows ce 6.0 to your device like a normal PC.  Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 setup.exe is not the OS binary. it is a development tool for Windows CE also it is a plugin for VS2005 Development environment.

    Windows CE devices are custom devices, To update your device you have to contact your device vendor for new OS binaries.

    Windows CE is not available as a retail product. You can buy licenses for Platform
    Builder, which will let you build and install custom versions. I don't think you have any
    other legal choices.
