How can I maintain my Windows-CE & Windows-Mobile software on Visual-studio 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi

    Our company want to move to Visual-Studio 2012

    but the problem is that we have many Windows-CE & Windows-Mobile projects.

    How can I maintain my Windows-CE & Windows-Mobile software on Visual-studio 2012

    is there any support for working in Windows-CE & Windows-Mobile ?

    If not then I do not have any reason to move to Visual-Studio 2012

    (I know a few big companies have the same problem)

    thanks

  • Simply you can't. According to way Microsoft say any pre Windows Compact 2013 (v.next) will NOT be supported in VS2012. Only application targeted new Windows Embedded Compact 2013 will be supported in VS2012 when this WinCE will be on the market, so I assume there will be some update for that. Only VS2005 and VS2008 is your option.

    Here is link to David Campbell post about it:
