Additional refresh for the Beta version of the .NET Micro Framework 4.0

Following up to some specific feedback we decided to provide one more update to the Beta version.  The update is available for download at In this update we fix some issues with debugging over TCP/IP, we polished MDK3.80a support and we moved the entire DPWS stack over the XML native parser.  We also removed a dependency from ATL in the runtime, which enables using Visual Studio Express with the Porting Kit to rebuild the CLR, the emulator, and the tools.  As always we are looking forward to your feedback.

    I can’t find Porting Kit in the list of downloads – only SDK. What is wrong?

    Hi, on two seperate computers I have noticed a problem after installing the latest MF beta.

    After installing the software any attempt to add a reference to a project results in "Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component". This occurs in both mf and other project types.

    A repair of vstudio afterwards fixes the issue.

    Just thought I’d post incase anyone else runs into this
