Sooopurb! I'd followed all the MS instructions and nothing worked. Then I tried this. And it's worked a charm.

Ultimately, it's this kind of thing that'll significantly impact Microsoft's dominance. I'm confident with searching the 'net, taking a risk and having a go. Most PC and Mobile users aren't (why should they/I have too?), which is why Android/Google OC and iPhone/Mac devices/systems will appeal more and more and, eventually, take more market share. Why does it take a third party service, such as this, to make the upgrade to 3.5 possible?

But a big thank you for doing what the world's biggest corporation couldn't!

If you're a developer or have knowledge of .net Compact Framework, you'll be aware that version 3.5 has shipped. You'll be aware that it offers a number of enhancements in features, stability and performance, and you'll likely also know that it provides full backwards compatability with previous versions of the Compact Framework. What you may NOT know is that when CF 3.5 is installed on a device, applications that target previous versions of the Compact Framework will continue to run against the old versions, and 3.5 and previous versions will live side by side on the device. Only when new devices come along will we see ONLY 3.5 on a device.

This presents a number of problems, namely

  • Users who deploy CF 3.5 to their device but use applications targeting older versions will not benefit from the 3.5 performance improvements
  • Developers who develop apps for pre CF 3.5 frameworks cannot easily test their applications ready for when 3.5 only devices come along
Thankfully, help is at hand in the form of a little known Compact Framework 3.5 powertoy named '.Net Configuration'. The application, which is available in this download at Microsoft, provides the user with full granularity of control over the .net CF on their device. You can see installed versions, change the used CF version for a particular application or change the used CF version for all applications run on your device! Perfect!

Sadly in Microsoft's infinite wisdom the application in question is tucked away in simple EXE inside the 6.2MB download and somewhat hard to find, so i've taken the liberty of packaging it up into a CAB here that installs it with it's own Start Menu shortcut. I've also included the .net CF 3.5 CAB below, so you can get your device updated quickly and easily by...

- Downloading and installing both CABs below (to internal memory!)
- Running '.Net Configuration' from your Start Menu
- Navigating to the 'Device Policy' tab and selecting version 3.5
- Selecting 'Apply' then 'OK'

That's it, you're done! You can even check it's working by installing my CamerAware Beta and hitting 'About', after which you should see the screen below.

Enjoy, and hope this is useful :)

P

PS If you ARE a developer, there's other goodies in that Powertoys package that are well worth a look too!

.Net Compact Framework doesn't show up in either the device policy dropdown or the application policy dropdown. i'm using the htc pure (manila 2.1) can you tell me what i'm doing wrong. i'm a bit of a noob so please forgive me if i'm asking something that you've already covered.
thanks in advance,

Thanks Paul!

worked like a charm, you are absolutely the man. i'm running on an HTC Pure from At&t. i believe manila 2.1 and once i got the .net CF downloaded and installed then the weather city editor from here worked great. i could add my own (very) small town.

thanks for posting man!

Paul,

The version you show a snapshot of..is it the most recent version?

I have NetCf v3.5.9198.00 on my Omnia 2, using a JA5 ROM (win 6.5 classic).

I looked at the registry in the dump of my rom and it is v3.5.9198.00.

Thank you very much for the easy to use cab and instructions. Saved me hours of searching. Works like a charm on my HTC Pure running 6.5 and now I can run nearly every program from OpnMarket. THX!

Paul,

I am a technical luddite when it comes to Mobiles but these instructions were brilliant. I had to tried to use Windows Update on my Xperia X1 but this doesn't work because of some UTC Time zone issue ( happens on all of my colleagues phones too) so I was a bit concerned as I couldn't run some new apps I had downloaded. Your update fixed all of those problems

Thanks
:D

Thank you very much.
I own the HD2 and I'd already tried to install it from microsoft and some other sites but with no result.
You were my last hope before giving up. Now everything is o.k.
Thanks again!
