  • The short answer is: no there is none.

    If my memories are corrent, Visual Studio 2005/8 does not officially support development for Windows CE.NET 4.2.
    Only Windows CE 5.0 and Windows Embedded CE 6.0 are officially supported - see (here) for details.

    If you want to try using the existing (x86 based) based emulator with VS2005/8 - this thread should help:

  • Hi Michael,

    I just need a help on related topic.

    I am currently having the application developed using VS 2008 (Dot net CF 3.5) which am deploying in windows CE 6.0 device. Everything is fine as of now. But now i want this application to be executed on windows CE 4.2 as well .

    The windows CE 4.2 is having the .NET CF 1.0 by default (ROM) , I am bit unclear here as i do not understand whether my CF 3.5 application can be executed directly on CE 4.2 device by installing the CF 3.5 framework files on CE 4.2 device ?

    Please help me if you can .
