Developing Windows CE 6.0 using Visual Studio 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Currently I have a requirement for Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Application development using VS2008. When i try to install Windows Embedded 6.0 software, i get the alert as VS2005 SP1 should be installed. 


    Kindly confirm whether can i able to install in VS2008? Please suggest comments or suggest alternate solution. How can I link with VS2008 with Windows CE 6.0??

  • What is the "Windows Embedded CE 6.0 software"?

    I think that it is Platform Builder.   Platform Builder requires VS2005, and comes with VS2005 so that shouldn't be a problem.

    But, since you are only planning to develop applications, you do not need Platform Builder.   You just need an SDK which you can use with VS2008, maybe.
