Issue trying to debug a VS.NET 2003 CF application on a WM 5.1 device

    Hello,
    I am trying to debug a VS.NET 2003 CF application on a WM 5.1 device
    without any success.
    I get the following message:

    Launching Application
    Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging.

    Unable to start program 'C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My
    Documents\Visual Studio Projects\K-Mobile Client\bin\Debug
    \KMobile.exe'.

    If I try to debug the same application with a Windows Mobile 2003
    device, everything is okay.

    Can anyone shed some light as to why this is happening?

  2. The version of the .NET Compact Framework running on that device is probably
    2.0. In that case, the VS debugger doesn't know enough about it, being a
    later version, to debug it. You get the same effect with VS2005 when
    debugging on a device running .NET CF 3.5.
