Using Win CE 5.0 SDK with VS.NET 2003

Hi,

My goal is to test my application on Windows CE 5.0 in the emulator. I
created a SDK that has .NET support, and built is for the
"Emulator:x86_Debug." After installing the SDK, I started Visual
Studio, and openned my application's solution. I selected my SDK's
emulator as the Deployment Device.

After starting the debugger, the emulator starts, but displays "Windows
CE.NET 4.1" instead of "Windows CE 5.0", the emulator shows a blank
screen and I get the following error from VS.NET:

"Error: Cannot establish a connection. Be sure the device is
physically cnnected to the development computer"

That message doesn't really make sense as my Deployment Device is the
emulator.

Has anyone had success using a Win CE 5.0 SDK and VS.NET 2003 and using
it's emulator?

Thanks for any help.

I can confirm the process is the same for CE 5.0. The trick is to make sure
KITL is disabled. If '4.1' came up instead of 5.0 that that implies the
wrong emulator image is being started which I can't explain...

Cheers,

.... unless you mean the about box of the emulator itself. VS will always
start the 4.1 emulator not the 5.0 one. I'm not sure how to make it start
5.0 but I found the 4.1 emulator works fine with a 5.0 CE image.

Daniel,

That did it! Following your steps and disabling KITL support in the
image was the fix.

Thanks a ton!
