Installed windows mobile 5.0 SDK on VS2008 but option not shown in drop down and F5 (start debugging window) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I may have uninstalled windows mobile 5.0 SDK before in VS 2008. Now I have reinstalled the Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK but does not appear in the drop down, not shown when F5 is pressed (start debugging), not shown when right clicking the project (solution explorer) to change target platform.

    However, I can see the Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK  Emulator when going to Tools -> Device Emulator Manager

    How do I enable the SDK I just installed?

    How about repair your Windows Mobile SDK?

    Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > WM 5 SDK > Uninstall > Repair.


    Or you may need reinstall the Visual Studio 2008.

  • Hi Jesse,

    Reparing the Windows Mobile SDK in the Add/Remove Programs did not work.

    I don't know if reinstalling VS2008 will work.
