In an earlier blog post, I mentioned that NetCFSvcUtil.exe (available as part of Power Toys for .NET Compact Framework 3.5) is broken on the following operating systems:

  • Window 7 RTM
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Vista SP2
  • Windows Server 2008 SP2

Specifically, when you try to run NetCFSvcUtil.exe on these operating systems, you might see the following error message:

Error: An error occurred in the tool.

Error: Error in the application.

The good news is that the Windows Mobile Developer team released a patch today that fixes this problem. You can download the new version of NetCFSvcUtil from here.
