I need to get started with programming for Pocket PC quickly. I think I downloaded what I need but maybe not. What do I need to download to get the Windows CE IDE? I'm assuming there is one. Just point me in the right direction to get started. I'm using Visual Studio 6 and want to do the Pocket PC programming in VB....

I have installed downloads from the Microsoft eMbedded site. They have created folders called Windows CE Tools and wince300. What did I install?

It should have created a folder under Program Files/Microsoft eMbedded Visual Tools (eVT).  You should have downloaded eVT which gives you the IDE for eVB and eVC.  Then you download SDKs for the different embedded platforms such as Windows CE, Handheld PC, and Pocket PC.  Quick search on microsoft.com took me to these two pages:


eVT: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=f663bf48-31ee-4cbe-aac5-0affd5fb27dd&languageid=f49e8428-7071-4979-8a67-3cffcb0c2524&displaylang=en

Pocket PC SDK: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=2dbee84a-bd94-4167-b817-2b2e548b2e92&displaylang=en

evt2002web_min.exe is the file I downloaded and installed (I took the fefaults). What file do I execute to start eVB? There is no folder called "Microsoft eMbedded Visual Tools (eVT)". There is however, a "Windows CE Tools"  folder in the program files folder. I was assuming that to be it. However, there seems to be NO developent environment tool (I tried to open all EXE files). Again. what file starts the eVB development environment? Is it the emulator that paints a picture of the Pocket PC and actually works like a pocket PC? I did get that to work. Is the development environment in that?

The actual file and location on my computer for the IDE is:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft eMbedded Tools\EVB\EVB3.EXE

I'm not sure what is missing from your installation.  It is separate from the emulator.  Maybe you can search microsoft for an alternate download?  I did notice while searching microsoft to get the links above that I got two different links to download eVT.  One specified eVT 2002 and the other specified eVT 3.0 2002.  I'm pretty sure 3.0 was the last revision to the eMbedded suite, but why it would be missing the IDE, I have no idea.
