Can't install Power Toys for CF 3.9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to install Power Toys for Compact Framework 3.9 on a machine that has Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 Professional + Application Builder for WEC 2013 + Platform Builder for Windows Embedded Compact 2013 with the latest updates, but unfortunately installer tells me that I don't have a Application Builder. Some know how to override this check or at least has some solution for it?

  • Ok. Thank you. Meanwhile I tracked it down by logging the msi actions and looks like the installer is looking only for Visual Studio 11 and 12 (2012 and 2013), so I put the missing registry key to fake the VS2013 installation and everything went ok.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\DevDiv\WindowsEmbeddedTools\Servicing\12.0\AppBuilder]
    "Install"=dword:00000001
    "SP"=dword:00000000
    "SPIndex"=dword:00000000
    "InstallerType"="MSI"
    "SPName"="RTM"
    "UpdateVersion"="14.0.24128"
    "Version"="14.0.24128"

  • You could probably also "hack" the msi by opening it in Orca and changing the string to look for the VS2015 instead of 2012 or 2013.

    We've had to resort to these kind of hacks before: https://guruce.com/blogpost/error-installing-wec2013-sdk
