Windows CE .NET, the newest member of the .NET family, includes a number of improvements over previous versions of Windows CE. For example, there are quite a few new APIs and enhancements to security and connectivity, the user interface, the kernel, and the emulator. In addition, DirectX support has been added and C++ in Windows CE .NET now supports C++ exceptions, STL, and runtime type information. In this article the author takes a tour of Windows CE .NET, starting with the New Platform Wizard that allows you to code for your choice of devices. A sample application is included that locates features on portable devices so the reader knows what's available before writing code.

In this article the author modifies an industry standard middle-tier application server benchmark called Nile. The goal was to get it to build and run correctly on the 64-bit edition of the Microsoft .NET Advanced Server running on computers with Intel Itanium processors and still build as a 32-bit version to run on Pentium class x86 processors. While modifying Nile, the author discovered some of the tips he presents here. As the article explains, when modifying code for 64-bit Windows, data types are the key to success. The article discusses which types to use and when, along with new data types and the importance of memory alignment.

sql 2008 installed, but didn't get pop up for windows installer 4.5, though intallation complete, but still wants to confirm the windows installer version, however, the windows 2008 seems not like w2k3 to show all windows components you installed, I only
see .net 3.5sp1 on the appwiz.cpl
- 64-bit, quad processor, 8GB RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium laptop.
I need to :
- setup Sharepoint 2010 development environment using Virtual Box.
- Setup SSRS 2008 R2 for reporting services.
I I have gone through several blogs and post but am not able to understand a clear sequence of what am I supposed to do. Please Please help me setup my machine in a way I can use it for my personal use and also use it for Sharepoint development.
I have a C# program that at some point calls 2 functions from an unmanaged dll using p/invoke. Everything works fine when I'm running in a console app. When I compile the same program as a windows service and run it, it crashes.
The console app and service should be identical as far as my code is concerned... all either program does is create an object from another assembly of mine and run a Start() method on it.
I have used VS2010 to debug the managed and unmanaged code, and when I step through the Console app everything looks great. When I attach the debugger to the service, i can step through the first function in the unmanaged
code, control returns to the managed code, and then later when it comes to the point where it calls the second unmanaged function, the process terminates immediately before the debugger steps into the first line of unmanaged code. There are no exceptions
that I can see, and the only thing written to the event log is the generic "service terminated unexpectedly" message. Running "sc query" on the command line lets me know the win32_exit_code is 1067.
Im running everything in .net 4, on winxp 32bit. The serivce is running as Local System ideally, but the same behavior exists when I run it under my user account.
I got this error after I installed the wsatui.dll for WCF Transaction.
The installed version of Windows Communication Foundation does not match the version of the WSAT configuration tool
anyone who can help me?
