Remote Tools (Compact 2013)


By using Remote Tools, you can use a development workstation to remotely perform a variety of programming tasks on a Windows Embedded Compact–based target device.

After you establish a connection between the remote tool and the target device, you can perform such tasks as:

  • Monitoring the status of processes and threads on the target device.
  • Measuring the performance of the target device.

This section provides information about remote tools that you can use to collect and analyze data from a Windows Embedded Compact powered device for performance tuning, testing, and debugging.
