Hi, All
I need help to find out more info on how to run project on emulator (target
WCE 5.0) on the PC w/o installation of Visual Studio .NET 2005.
It should work like standalone emulator. What do i need for it to make it
work? Vertual PC images for emulator...?
please, advice

There is no good answer for this. What are you actually trying to achieve?
I guess that you could, theoretically, create a Virtual PC image, create a
Windows CE OS for that using Platform Builder, and send that off to someone.
Of course, you have a licensing issue for that; you're shipping an
executable Windows CE image; you have to pay for it. If you tell us what
you're trying to actually achieve, however, maybe we can suggest something
else.

Hi, Paul
We want to install on the technical support person PC standalone emulatorfor
writting manuals. On the shared folder we will place data files and wce
executable to run and tech support can navigate thru the screens and write a
manual, all our projects are very specific to our clients requerments. We
don't mind to pay for license,
please, advice

I don't see any reason not to just use a real device for this. The ability
to use the mouse with the emulator is quite likely to skew how the
documentation is written, also. Better to make the person telling others
how to use the software actually do the tasks. Of course, for screen shots,
I think that you should be able to use the Remote Display power toy from
Microsoft...

The only stand-alone emulator that I see is the WM5 one found here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...FamilyID=c62d54a5-183a-4a1e-a7e2-cc500ed1f19a

If you're trying to emulate your own device, you'll have to take one of the
other routes (real device or install Visual Studio).

Hello,

for screenshots there is also a freeware tool named PocketSnap
available. You might want to assign it to one of the hardware buttons
you hopefully possess on the device.

Greetings

Markus
