Can Expression Blend 4 be used with with Embedded Compact 7 devices? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, in the Microsoft whitepaper "Expression Blend and Silverlight for Windows Embedded" it says "Windows Embedded Compact 7 designers use Micriosoft Expression Blend 3 to design and prototype dynamic Silverlight for Windows Embedded applications...".  Is anyone using the later version 4 to do the same thing?

    I have a trial version of Expression Blend 3 but this version does not seem readily available to buy.

    Apologies if this is not the best forum for this question!

  • Hi Andrew,


    I've both installed, so gave Expression Blend 4 a quick run by generating a project (Setting the Silverlight framework to 3, rather than 4) and then using the WEST tools to create the C++ app. That worked okay.

    I don't have the templates installed for version 3 so couldn't tell you if they appeared in 4 or not.
