Emulator Woes


Joseph Byrns

OK, I am using VS2005 Beta 2 and the WM 5.0 emulator (I also have VS 2003
installed). When I try and deploy an application to the emulator I get:

Deployment and/or registration failed with error: 0x80070003. The system
cannot find the path specified.

I have tried reinstalling the DMA Transport Update, The emulator appears to
have a valid IP address and I can sucessfully ping that address, I can
connect to the device using Tools->Connect to Device and I can even have
ActiveSync establish a connection to the emulator by clicking Cradle in the
Emulator Manager.

I have also tried deleting everything in C:\Documents and Settings\<Current
User>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CoreCon.

Still I get no deployment.

Any ideas.

need something to get going with now. I can connect to the emulator using
ActiveSync and browse the folders there, so I will just have to copy the
application across and launch it manually. (unless I can find a newer
