The Smart Devices Remote Tools Framework is a powertoy for use by mobile and embedded system developers building on the Microsoft Windows CE platform. The package contains a pre-built host and device side components (for ARM devices only), a set of sample projects that use the framework, and how-to/API documentation. All of the connectivity between the desktop and device is done by the framework, the developer just writes the data collector and data viewer code.

Please note that this power toy is not officially supported, however, we are looking for ways to improve this powertoy in the future. We have set up a blog under the Windows CE Base Team Blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/ce_base/ where you can find more information about the Remote Tools Framework powertoy.
