Setup for WinCE 6.0, Visual Studio 2008 and Device SDK RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi, 

         I am to develop an application for a Win CE 6.0 device. Device Manufacturer (Datalogic) provides a SDK.   

         I am working on Vista. I have installed VS 2008 and SDK provided by Device. With VS2008, under SmartDeviceProject I find Win CE - so I believe VS has installed SDK for WinCE too. On installing device SDK I can also see components in Tools - this tells that is also installed properly.

         I am finding difficult to set an emulator for WinCE6.0. I can't find any, nor from the Datalogic. Am I missing anyhting in respect to making project for Win CE (particularly Win CE 6.0 SDK setup). I have read that their is no direct emulator for Win CE. How to set emulator for Win CE ? I am finding very hard time in setting these two things. Please help me and guide me.

  • As far as I'm aware, there is no Windows CE 6.0 Emulator.  There is a Pocket PC 2003 SE emulator that you may be able to use to test some code, but I'm sure there will be some differences between that and Windows CE.  There is also something called CEPC, which I'm guessing is a Virtual PC for hosting Windows CE, but I have yet to use it

    When you create a new Smart Device Project, you will see "Windows CE" as one of the target platforms.  I think that is installed by default when you install the Smart Device Framwork in the Visual Studio 2008 installation.   Your device's SDK is another story....

    After you create your Smart Device Project, go the Project's properties and select the "Devices" tab.  There you should be able to select your "Target Device" which should list the SDK specific to your device (if it was installed correctly).

    I'm not an expert in this field, but given the absence of any other replies I thought I'd offer what I know

  • Windows CE 6.0 has device emulator but it is not ready-made pluglin like Windows CE 5.0, Windows Mobile or Pocktet PC. you have to build the Device emulator through platform builder and use it. See the below link.

    Another option is Virtual PC.
