I can't connect visual studio 2005 to my wince 5.0 device

I have just upgraded to wince 5.0 and visual studio .net 2005. I am trying to
simply connect from visual studio to debug and run a hello world. I am
connected via activesync, so I can copy files back and forth. However, when I
hit "connect to device", it tells me "Connection failed. The bootstrap could
not be loaded".

I've seen lots of articles on variations of connecting to the device, but
none that explain how to do it in the most basic way, which is ActiveSync
over USB. I'm guessing this is because it is supposed to be simple. Howver, I
had similar issues on 4.2, and ended up having to have files copied to the
device (toolhelp.dll and delcryptokeys), and jump through lots of hoops, none
of which were explained in any documentation. What hoops am I missing here?
Is there something I was supposed to include in the OS that I am missing?

OK, I found something that got me past that. Now on to other, bigger
problems. I can deploy, but the device claims to be unabled to uninstall some
files. VS claims something is corrupted. This seems unlikely. Is there any
reason I shouldn't have VS 2005 and platform builder on the same machine?
