Standalone Device Emulator 1.0

Neville Lang

Hi all,

While my questions are not specifically related to CF, it is in the area of
CF testing and usage so I apologize in advance if this is not the best forum
to post these queries. If there is another forum for these types of
questions, please let me know.


For the past few years, I have always used one of my devices connected to VS
for testing. Up to now, I have never used the emulator - something I gave
away using back in VS .NET 2003 because of how slow it was.

In VS2005, I have read that there is the Standalone Device Emulator 1.0. I
can see that it has been installed in the list of installed programs but
there does not seem to be a menu or desktop link to it. After studying the
MS website on this topic, I cannot see how one can access it either without
using VS2005. Does any one know how to access this utility?

My reason for this is that I am looking at creating a module that has the
Standalone Device Emulator in it plus my program so that potential customers
can try out my program in this distributed emulator before committing to the
purchase of a device. Another question is how does one install and/or
transfer an app onto the standalone emulator?


I have noted on the MS website that there are two files to download the
Standalone Device Emulator 1.0: V1Emulator.msi and efp.msi. As far as I can
tell, the V1Emulator has already been installed probably during VS2005. When
I try to run the efp.msi, I keep getting a warning message that I need to
install "Virtual Machine Network Driver". I downloaded this MSI and ran it
and see that it has been installed in the list of installed programs as
"Virtual Machine Network Services Driver" in my "Programs and Features"
list. I keep getting the warning message that I need to install "Virtual
Machine Network Driver". Has any one else tried to install/use the
Standalone Device Emulator v1 and was successful in using it?

My development computer is a Windows Vista 64-bit o/s and I have VS 2005 SP1
installed plus the Windows Vista update.


Regards,
Neville Lang
