VS Emulator - Windows CE Device Error

I'm trying to learn how to write programs for Windows CE 6.0

I'm using Visual Studio 2008 and have the Windows Device Emulator v3 installed

I'm running 64-bit Windows 7.

When I try to start up the emulator and select "Windows CE" as the device, I get the following error message.

"Connection failed. ActiveSync bootstap initialization failed. Please connect/cradle a real device or download the User-level Windows Mobile Device Center Application from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?linkid=67763"

I've followed the link to microsoft's site but it just leads to a windows phone page that's of no help to me.


It's been a long time since I used an emulator, but IIRC you should be able to fire up the Device Emulator Manager, then Connect and Cradle the emulator.

The other option would be to use a direct CoreCon connection for debugging by copying the bits to the emulator and running conmanclient2.exe and cmaccept.exe.
