For more than 2 years, there has not been significant development to support Windows Embedded Compact (formerly known as Windows CE), under the Visual Studio IDE.

Currently, development tasks for the latest version, Windows Embedded Compact 7, is supported in Visual Studio 2008, and is not supported in Visual Studio 2010.  This situation forces many developers to maintain separate development environments.

While detail information about support for Windows Embedded Compact in Visual Studio 2012 is still limited as of today.

Microsoft has officially announced the next version of Windows Embedded Compact will be supported in Visual Studio 2012.

More information will be available during the Visual Studio 2012 launch event on September 12, 2012.
