Compact 7: Is it really ready ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Our company is working for a long time with WinCE. We have started with CE 2.12 and moved to every new version. Now we want to move to Compact 7. But every day we are working with this version, we find new problems.

    A few examples:

    * long build time
    * huge memory requirements
    * problems in the buíld system
    * new SKUs
    * no support for VOIP
    * VS2010 is not supported

    So from our point of view, it looks like MS has decided to give the actual state of a NOT finished project to customers.
    For us, Compact is nor useable at the moment.
    Hopefully MS will provide some updates to make Compact 7 a successful porduct.

  •   Toolchain depends on your requirements.
    WEC7 supports some new features that aren't available within previous versions - muticore and RAM memory upto 3GB. Also, VS2008 works much faster than VS2005 during Debug mode.
    But other side is numerous "Known issues" (check WEC7 release notes).

    We are in contact with MS support team concerning some issues, they promise to release first update not early than August-September.
