Visual Studio 2015, Native C++, Can I install A CE 6.0 SDK? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an application that I am currently maintaining in VS 2008.
    It is native C++ / Win32 (no .NET, MFC,....).
    This is a single set of source code (with a couple of #defines) that supports:
    Desktop:
    1.) XP Sp3.
    2.) Windows 7.
    3.) Windows 8.
    4.) Windows 8.1
    5.) Windows 10.
    Compact:
    7.) Windows CE 6.0 R3 (x86)
    8.) Windows Embedded Compact 7 (x86)
    9.) Windows CE 6.0 R3 (ARM)

    I want to attempt to maintain this application in Visual Studio 2015.

    I will ignore my issues with the desktop operating architectures and focus on the
    Compact architectures:
    1.) The Windows CE 6.0 R3 (x86) and Windows Embedded Compact 7 (x86) are both built against
        the same 'generic' SDK that I produced from a Windows CE 6.0 R3 machine.
    2.) Windows CE 6.0 R3 (ARM) is built against an SDK that was produced from a clients ARM device.

    In my current (VS 2008) configuration Platform Builder is not required on the machine that is doing
    the build. All I have on that machine is:
    1.) Visual Studio 2008.
    2.) Windows 7.1 SDK.
    3.) The (installed) 'generic' CE 6.0 (x86) SDK.
    4.) The (installed) CE 6.0 (ARM) SDK.

    I would think I would be able to maintain this application in Visual Studio 2013.
    Is this possible?

    All I want installed on the machine that is doing the build:
    1.) Visual Studio 2015 (With the associated 8,8.1,10 SDK's).
    2.) Windows 7.1 SDK.
    3.) The 'generic' CE 6.0 (x86) SDK.
    4.) The CE 6.0 (ARM) SDK.

    My first issue is that I cannot figure out how to 'install' the CE 6.0 SDK's
    so Visual Studio 2015 see's them!

    The machine I am testing this on already has Visual Studio 2008 installed and both
    of the CE 6.0 SKD's installed (they are located: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows CE Tools\wce600).
    I would think that Visual Studio 2015 would see them?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
