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.

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.
