Pro Windows Embedded Compact 7
Yesterday I received my copy of “Pro Windows Embedded Compact 7” by Avi Kcholi. It’s a great book for people that have some experience and knowledge Windows Embedded Compact 7 and want to learn the “black magic” behind device driver development on this operating system. The book guides the reader trough different aspects of drivers (and BSP) development, starting from the foundation and reaching some advanced topics that are not covered in the on-line reference. ......

Windows 8 First Impressions
Technorati Tags: Windows 8 Just like many thousands of geeks around the world I downloaded the Windows 8 preview from Microsoft’s website: and spent some time playing with it. Being an embedded developer I don’t have any powerful machine lying unused in my office, so I installed Windows 8 on a very low-spec machine, a 1.6GHz Atom with 1GB of RAM and a 120GB HD (taken from an old mac). First of all I must say that I’m pretty impressed by the responsiveness ......

Using Dependency Walker
Dependency Walker is a very useful tool that can be used to find dependencies of a Portable Executable module. The PE format is used also on Windows CE and this means that Dependency Walker can be used to analyze also Windows CE/Windows Embedded Compact module. On Win32 it can be used also to monitor modules loaded by an application during runtime, this feature is not supported on CE. You can download dependency walker for free here: To analyze the dependencies of a ......

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). ......

Windows CE and the Compact Framework are dead?
This is one of the question that I’ve been asked more and more frequently at my public speeches and each time I meet customers. The announcement of the new Windows Phone 7 platform and the release of Visual Studio 2010 generated a bit of confusion around Windows CE and some of the technologies it supports. Windows CE is still alive and a lot of good programmers are working on the new releases (I had a chance to know some of them during the MVP summit in February). Here’s a blog post from Olivier ......

Visual Studio application debugger
You just finished that BSP, developed all required drivers and low-level code, configured hive-based registry, defined your device's memory layout... and now it's time to develop your application to leverage all that low-level/OS code and provide great services to your device's end users. You may want to use visual languages like C# or VB.Net to develop it, using the power and ease of usage of the .NET Compact Framework or, you want (or need) to use C and C++ but you want to use advanced libraries ......
