Step by Step: Migrating an eMbedded Visual C++ Application to Visual Studio 2005


With the release of Visual Studio 2005 coming real soon it’s perhaps time to take a look at how you can use Visual Studio 2005 to write your native and managed applications for Windows CE devices.


To get you started there’s an article (ok, it’s a Windows Mobile article, and yes, I’m going to be writing up some Windows CE specific articles around native and managed code development for Visual Studio 2005) has been published on MSDN called


Step by Step: Migrating an eMbedded Visual C++ Application to Visual Studio 2005 – one thing to note here… Even though Visual Studio 2005 ships with support for both native (updated versions of MFC, ATL, STL, WTL) and managed code development you can continue to use eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0 SP4 to write applications that target your Windows CE 5.0 based devices.

    The inclusion of a development platform for embedded devices in native code being included into VS05 shows how embedded devices are penetrating our lives and also proves that we are gonna have more embedded developers. Kudos!

    Hi,

    I’m interested in this article, but it redirects to:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnppcgen/html/med303_msdn_migrate_evc_app_vs2k5.asp

    which gives me the 404. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Tim
