Earlier in the week, I posted information about how to enable Attach to Process for your applications running on version 2 of the .NET Compact Framework. Today, I'd like to talk a little about how to use Visual Studio 2005 to attach to your managed applications.
Note: This post uses the Beta 2 release of both the .NET Compact Framework and Visual Studio 2005.
To attach to your .NET Compact Framework application, you will need to be sure to have the communications transports deployed to your device. The easiest way to get the required files deployed is to use Visual Studio to build and debug at least one application on your device.
Attaching to a managed application
You can now debug your application.
Please be sure to disable Attach to Proccess support once you are finished debugging to avoid the performance issues discussed in the enabling attach to process post.
