No 6.X support in VS 2010? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just downloaded and installed VS2010 from MSDN.  Ok.  Looks cool.   Let's convert my current WM project.  Oops!  The conversion failed.  Hmmm... Evidently the install didn't pickup the WM SDK.  Hmmm...  I'd better see if there's a version specific to 2010.

    Imagin my chagrin when I started reading posts claiming that Phone 7 was all you could do in VS2010.

    What!???  Tell me it ain't so.

  • It is so. This was actually announced a few months ago and reconfirmed by Ballmer at the Mobile World Congress with the words "...continue to use Visual Studio 2008 for Windows Mobile development..."   Since you've got MSDN you should have access to the past versions of Visual Studio 2008 also.

    It takes all the running you can do to stay in one place.If you want to get somewhere else,you must try to run at least twice as fast as that.
