Hello-

 From another question someone asked, I saw I could get the CE 5.0 Emulator at:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=A120E012-CA31-4BE9-A3BF-B9BF4F64CE72&displaylang=en

Even after installing this, how do I build and debug a solution onto the emulator? The Device Emulator Manager does not show it and it can't be chosen anywhere within VS2005... any ideas? Thanks.

HOW TO USE:
Click Start > All Programs > Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 > Device Emulator.

Choose the Emulation Project Kit that you want to run. By default, one Emulation Project Kit is available. If you download additional Emulation Project Kits, those kits will also be listed.

Goodluck

Also in VS2005 Help you can find details about "Device Emulator"

Even if I start the Sample CE Device from my program files, there is no CE 5.0 Emulator to choose from in VS05. Not sure what you specificly mean by 'Emulation Project Kit'., but under the Device Emulator Manager there is no CE 5.0 Emulator, only the device itself.

First you have to make a Smart Device Application

Open Visual studio 2005 and create new project

Then you will get your options to select your emulator

Does this add the ability to deploy from 2005, or is it similiar to the link I have in my original question?
