Using Vs2003 with a WinCE device

Guest

On Friday I posted a request about how to connect Vs2003 to a WinCE device
via a TcpIp connection. I was directed to the "Windows CE Utilities for
Visual Studio .NET 2003 Readme". This file does talk about exactly this
connection but it refers to the following files that should have been
installed on the Desktop when the "Windows CE .NET Utilities v1.1 for Visual
Studio .NET 2003.EXE" was installed. Files such as : "SDAuthUtilDevice.exe".
This file was supposed to be in this directory "\Program Files\Microsoft
Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\WinCE Utilities\Authentication
Util". That directory does not even exist (starting at the WinCE Utilities)
on my computer yet the Add-in was installed without problems and I can
develop and deploy to the WinCE Emulator. Can any one indicate where this
file and the others such as "Toolhelp.dll" (which is to be installed on the
external device) can be obtained?

Any help would be appreciated.

The device manufacturer can build them into the OS, as mentioned on Friday.
I don't think that toolhelp.dll can be redistributed by *any* OEM. It's not
licensed in that way. The WinCE Utils puts it here, though:

D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\WinCE
Utilities\ToolHelp

As for the SDAuthUtilDevice program, it's here on my system:

D:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\WinCE
Utilities\Authentication Util

Did you check any and all drives where it might have been installed?

My directory structure does not include those folders. Under "E:\Program
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK" I have just two
directories: ConnectionManager and v1.0.5000.

Please note that the Addin to Vs2003 did install properly and I can create
Netcf Apps that deploy to the Emulator. Is there something that I need to
install beyond "Windows CE .NET Utilities v1.1 for Visual Studio .NET
2003.EXE".

I did search all drives for those files and they are no present.

Thanks.

I downloaded the Addin. I compared it to the one on the computer using
Windiff and they were identical. I re-installed anyway and this time the
directories are there, so this problem is solved.

Thanks very much for your help.

I don't know why this did not happen the first time. Please note that the
first installation some months ago did add the WinCE items to the Vs2003 such
as the project templates and adding the device to the \Tools\Options. I do
not know why the directories were not installed.

One last question. Under "E:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\WinCE Utilities\Authentication Util\" there are two
directories: "WinCE3" and "WinCE4". I assume that I use the "WinCE4". Is that
correct?

Again, my sincere thanks.
