I have just installed VisualStudio 2005 (Beta 2), and wanted to play around with developing a Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone application, but I can only find options for creating Smartphone 2003SE applications..

Went to the MS site and found the ‘Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK for Smartphone’ which I downloaded and installed.. but still have no options in VS2005 to compile and emulate to windows mobile 5..

There is an option for ‘Windows Mobile 5 CE’ but that’s makes an app that’s not designed for Smartphone and by the looks of it not for PocketPC’s either..

Just want to get coding away with WM5 what am I doing wrong..

Thanks

When you install the Smartphone SDK, new projects you create will have WM5 Smartphone in the target platform list.

However, existing projects will not have that option until you create a new configuration.

Hi, I have the same problem except I am using VS 2005 final. I have the windows mobile 5.0 pocket pc and smartphone SDKs installed. However only pocket pc shows up in the new project window. Any ideas?

A windows CE 5.0 project is not what we want.

You can use both VB and C# in Visual Studio.

C# is more or less VB with added semicolons to make it appear like C or C++ (a joke with some truth in it). The transisition from VB is quite easy, and after a while you will probably prefer it since there are more examples available online.
