Expression blend - Can not create new project for Windows Embedded Compact 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed Windows Embedded Compact 2013 with all prerequisites. In Blend, the project template shows the 'Windows Embedded Compact' option but unable to create new project (also problem in opening project). Its not showing designer, files etc in solution explorer. Actually i wanted to evaluate designer and supported controls for Windows Embedded Compact 2013. Also Windows Compact 2013 project template is present in template folder of blend (...\Visual 11.0\Blend\Project template\Visual C#\Silverlight\WindowsEmbeddedcompact2013.

    The blend is perfectly working for WPF project but I could not figure out whats going wrong for Windows Embedded Compact 2013.

    Do i need to install device SDK for my device for just creating sample XAML embedded UI using blend? Also I could not locate  'Windows Embedded Compact' option in VS 2012. My first goal is just view designer (UI controls) in blend for Windows Embedded Compact 2013.

    Above case is working for Windows 7. Just i done 3 installations from Windows Embedded Compact 2013 toolkit

    - Application builder for VS2012

    - WEXT (..\WEXT\WindowsEmbeddedXamlTools2013.msi)

    - Blend Template (..\BlendTemplates\WindowsEmbeddedXamlToolsBlendTemplates2013.msi)

    So now blend is perfectly working on Windows 7. But what happened with Windows 8?
