Diagnostics and Debugging for Mobile and Embedded Development (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


Windows Embedded CE provides tools for testing and debugging a Windows Embedded CE–based device. Most tools for debugging and testing reside on the development workstation, and thus rely on a connectivity infrastructure that facilitates communication between the development workstation and a target device.
