Developing Windows Embedded Compact Application (installation issues) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to develop an application for a device running Windows Embedded Compact 7

    I have downloaded the Application Builder for Windows Embedded Compact 2013 (VSEmbedded_AppBuilder.exe) from here and installed it on my machine

    I am following the instructions from this page which says that there should be a "Windows Embedded Compact" node within the New Project dialog box. There isn't

    Additionally, if I launch VSEmbedded_AppBuilder.exe I get a window that only gives you the option to Repair or Uninstall and displays no information other information other than the fact that it is the Application Builder for Windows Embedded Compact 2013 that you are trying to run

    I have tried repairing and uninstalling and it doesn't help. I have also tried restarting my pc between installing and opening visual studio. Doesn't help either

    What am I missing here?

    I'm running Visual Studio 2012 Professional on a Windows 7 machine. All I want to do is build an application for my Windows Embedded Compact 7 device
