Welcome to the companion content page for Programming Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Developer Reference,
which has content and links related to this book. For additional information,
see the book's Introduction.
You'll need the following hardware and software to build and run the code samples for this book:
The book is written with the assumption that the reader knows C and is at least familiar with Microsoft Windows. All native code development was done with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. To compile the example programs in the book, you need Visual Studio 2005 and a Windows CE devise SDK. The book Web site has a custom SDK that can be used as a programming target. This SDK includes a device emulator so the examples can be tested without the need of accompanying hardware.
To compile and run the examples, you need Visual Studio 2005 or later. The ProgWinCE SDK on the Web site supports compiling for ARM as well as x86 systems.
The emulator runs a version of Windows CE 6.0 inside an ARM emulator, which results in an actual Windows CE operating system runtime executing. Applications should compile to an ARM CPU target to run in the emulator.
Installing the Code Samples
After you download the code samples file to your computer, run the installer and
follow the instructions that appear.
Uninstalling the Code Samples
To remove the code samples from your computer, make the appropriate selection
from Add Or Remove Programs in the Control Panel.
