Windows CE 4.2 Standard SDK

leave a comment »


If you desperately are searching for this SDK, then you won’t find it on MSDN, but it still is possible to find it on the internet, one good place for it is: http://www.hpcfactor.com/developer/. I hardly can understand why Standard SDK’s are being withdrawn by Microsoft. I understand that the general idea is to write applications for specific devices and use SDK that is provided by the device developer, but there are companies that does not target specific device and also does not use specific device features. You can find many examples of this situation in Navigation Systems market.

Visual Studio 2005 and "Unable to start debugging" issue

leave a comment »


It’s been long since my last post, but it was due to a lot of work I was into. Today I want to share my experience with the dreadfull error from the post title.

I work under Windows XP sp3, with Visual Studio 2005 sp1, I also installed evc4, and STANDARD_SDK.msi (WCE 5.0 SDK) from MSDN. After that I installed Visual Studio 2008, and this is what causes problems. The only visual difference is that after installation of VS2005 I can see “Windows CE 5.0 Device” and debugging works OK, while after installation of VS2008 I can see “Windows CE Device” and debugging does not work. Unfortunately I have no solution to this other than uninstalling VS2008.
