Microsoft's earlier launch of the Windows Mobile 6 SDK, the
Windows Mobile team has now released the Microsoft Device Emulator 2.0, which is the second publicly released version of the Device Emulator for ARM-based
Devices. This emulator is also being released with the Windows Mobile 6 SDK and the Adaptation Kit (AK) releases of Windows Mobile 6 and Windows Embedded CE 6.0.
Device Emulator 2.0 release contains the same executables and DLLs as the 1.0
release that came with Visual Studio 2005. This version of the Emulator has
upgraded performance and some new features and will replace the emulator
installed with Visual Studio 2005.
The Device Emulator V2.0 is required for application development targeting
Windows Mobile 6 and Windows Embedded CE 6.0 from Visual Studio 2005 but it's
also required if your system is running Windows Vista. Device Emulator 2.0 has taken a few design changes to work with the Windows Vista operating system that enables the emulator to be cradled using the Windows Mobile Device Center. You will need to install the Windows Mobile Device Center application to successfully cradle the device emulator, setup partnerships, synchronize content, etc.
The Microsoft Device Emulator can be downloaded free of charge from Microsoft.
