Professional Windows Embedded Compact 7
This new book targets embedded developers that want to use the latest release of the Windows CE/Windows Embedded Compact OS family. It has been written by Samuel Phung (that wrote also the excellent “Professional Windows CE 6.0”), Thierry Joubert and David Jones (that released many very useful tools for Windows Embedded in the past). They are great developers and also very good trainers and writers, and I’m pretty sure that they will provide a great amount of knowledge to people wanting to discover ......

Installing Windows CE 6.0 tools on a Windows7 64bit PC (Updated again)
I recently bought a new PC and I choosed a machine based on the 64bit version of Windows 7. Using a 64bits OS will allow me to use more than 4GB of RAM and this is quite important for me because it will allow me to run multiple virtual machines to test beta products and keep some customers' development environment isolated from the others (for example for customers that need to test and certify each installed QFE and may allow me to install them on my development machine some time after their availability). ......

Using Dependency Walker
Dependency Walker is a very useful tool that can be used to find dependencies of a Portable Executable module.
