There is two version of the WM 6 SDK available, Standard and Professional. It sounds like you need to download and install the Standard version which you can get from the following page :-

This error occurs when I open the project solution.  The  OS on the device is WinCE 5.0 and I have already downloaded the Win CE 5.0 SDK (standard) and installed it on my system with no change to the error.

I have also installed the "Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK.msi" which is the WM 5 SDk Professional and no change.

My project file in my solution ended up becoming corrupt somehow and not allowing me to open.  Everything i needed was installed but it just was not seeing them.  I think it occurred when I changed some of my names in the solution.
