Hi Experts!!!

I downloaded the WinCe Emulator and I'm trying to using it do debug my application. The problem is that i need to change the Emulator Screen Size to correctly test it. Does anybody knows how could I do this?

Please, if another software (like SDK) is necessary to solve my problem, please tell me.
Thanks a lot.

    I believe that CE 5 Platform Builder is a retail product (i.e. chargable). At least it was the last time we needed to get a copy.

    You can download an evaluation version (120 days) from:

    This askes you to login with your .net passport.

    I also found this link:

    but judging from the date, this might be a slightly older version.

    I read somewhere that Platform Builder is being intergrated into the next version of Visual Studio, so maybe it will be available with an MSDN subscription at some point.
