[ Wondering what's a DTK? Read: SDK, DTK, DRK: WTF?!  ]

Overview

The Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit adds documentation, sample code, header and library files, emulator images and tools to Visual Studio [2008] that let you build applications for Windows Mobile 6.5. This document contains important information about this package. For general information about writing software for Windows Mobile, please see the Windows Mobile Developer Center. The Windows Mobile 6 SDK must also be installed in order to use any of the Windows Mobile 6.5 Gesture API or samples. Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit comes with the following Emulator Images:
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional Square Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional QVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional WQVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional VGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional WVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard Square Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard QVGA Emulator

Available locales:
0804 CHS Chinese Simplified
0409 USA English
0407 GER German
040c FRA French
0410 ITA Italian
0c0a ESN Spanish

A new set of APIs is being introduced that will enable application developers to take advantage of the new Windows Mobile 6.5 touch gesture framework. The gesture APIs allow an application to handle touch gesture input and provide a visually consistent experience with the rest of the device UI. Note that the gesture APIs are only available on the Windows Mobile Classic and Professional SKUs. The headers and libraries are installed in the Windows Mobile SDK\Pocket PC\ folder. Samples that make use of these APIs are installed into the Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit\Samples\ folder.

 

NOTE:

Don't forget that this is a DTK - which only contains Samples and Emulator Images.

You will still need a Windows Mobile 6.1 SDK that contains necessary information for Visual Studio to work with Windows Mobile projects and base set of tools like Cellular Emulator.

Strange, I can't seem to open the samples of the Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit. After conversion to a VS 2008 solution there are no projects and files visible in the solution explorer.

Stan,

I forgot to mention that this is a DTK.
So you will need to download an SDK before this.

That is why VS does not know what to do with the samples in the 6.5 DTK.

Download the WM 6 SDK from:
