Smart Device application

Installing the Windows Embedded Compact Edition 2013 Update for Visual Studio 2013
I wanted to install the Windows Embedded Compact Edition 2013 Update that is compatible with Visual Studio 2013. But I discovered that the install process is poorly described. What follows is what I found out (most of it) myself. The Windows Embedded Compact Edition 2013 download link itself has been updated with a more recent image named “Windows Compact Edition 2013 Update 5”.

Building Windows CE 6 or 7 Smart Device Application with Visual Studio 2012 (Part 2)
In Part 1 of this blog post we learned how to create a Visual Studio 2012 compatible Windows CE 6 or 7 SDK. Now I show you how you can create Visual Studio 2012 C++ projects (vcxproj) for it. Or if you want, how to upgrade your Visual Studio 2008 projects (vcproj) for Windows CE 6/7 to Visual Studio 2012 projects (vcxproj) for Windows CE 6/7. If you followed the steps in Part 1 carefully, you should have now the following situation (the same applies to Windows CE 7): A Windows CE 6 SDK folder compatible ......

And how much it is different from the Visual Studio you use for developing the OS image, or how much it is different from the latest Visual Studio version?

Windows Embedded Compact 2013 Smart Device application projects in Visual Studio 2012 (and their bugs)
After I built my first new Windows Embedded Compact 2013 image (named “MyDevice8”) and corresponding SDK, I was eager to test how you can build Smart Device applications with VS2012. I mean with that: without the need to install Platform Builder, but only the SDK and create a VS2012 Smart Device application project (as you would do for a desktop WIN32 project). Before you can start however creating a new “MyDevice8” based project, these are the installation steps to follow: Install Visual Studio ......
