Dependency Walker is a very useful tool that can be used to find dependencies of a Portable Executable module. The PE format is used also on Windows CE and this means that Dependency Walker can be used to analyze also Windows CE/Windows Embedded Compact module. On Win32 it can be used also to monitor modules loaded by an application during runtime, this feature is not supported on CE.

I recently bought a new PC and I choosed a machine based on the 64bit version of Windows 7.
Using a 64bits OS will allow me to use more than 4GB of RAM and this is quite important for me because it will allow me to run multiple virtual machines to test beta products and keep some customers' development environment isolated from the others (for example for customers that need to test and certify each installed QFE and may allow me to install them on my development machine some time after their availability).
This post is not about lockpicking... it's about registry settings (and keys) and configuration files, but I can't manage to find a better title.
Windows CE build is quite a complex process.
It involves different tools to parse makefiles, build and link code, merge resouces, make the OS image etc. and if something fails during the build is not always easy to understand what's wrong.
If you don't have a "PRIVATE" subfolder in your Windows CE installation subtree or if it's almost empty, go finding the installation CD and re-launch the installation.
Fellow MVP Jochen Dieckfoß has posted a tutorial about Silverlight for Windows Embedded development using the new tools included in the Windows Embedded Compact 7 CTP on his blog “Discover the Windows Embedded Experience”.
In this tutorial step we will develop a very simple clock application that may be used as a screensaver on our devices and will allow us to discover a new feature of Silverlight for Windows Embedded (transforms) and how to use an “old” feature of Windows CE (timers) inside a Silverlight for Windows Embedded application.
One of the most important aspects of this new platform is that it will be programmed using a new set of tools and frameworks, completely different from the ones used on older releases of Windows Mobile (or SmartPhone, or PocketPC or whatever…).

In this second tutorial we will learn how to use storyboards to create animations inside our user interface and how we can control them from code.
