What's New in the .NET Compact Framework Version 2.0 SP1

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1 extends the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 with several new features. This topic provides information about some of the key additions and modifications to the .NET Compact Framework in version 2.0 SP1.

You can install the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1 to RAM by using a CAB file installation. To obtain this service pack, visit the Microsoft .NET Framework Developer Center.

Note Note

If you want to update the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 to SP1 with extended Visual Studio 2005 redistribution rights on your development computer, you must install the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1 update.

The version of the .NET Compact Framework that you install by using a CAB file must always be newer than any version stored in ROM.

To install the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1 to ROM, you must obtain the correct Platform Builder monthly update from the Windows CE Updates Web site. Note that two QFEs are available; one is for installation to Windows CE version 5.0 devices and the other is for installation to Windows CE 4.2 devices.

The .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1 supports creating Windows CE-based headless devices. For more information, see How to: Create a Headless Device.

The .NET Compact Framework Remote Performance Monitor is a debugging and performance-tuning tool that is included with the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1. This tool provides a user interface that lets you view performance data while an application is running. For more information, see How to: Monitor Performance at Run Time.

For CAB file installations, the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1 can now be installed to a storage card. For more information, see Device Memory Management in the .NET Compact Framework.

The command-line debugger that was previously available only with the full .NET Framework is now supported on the .NET Compact Framework version 2.0 SP1.
