Hey everyone, we have been fielding some questions about installation requirements for Compact 7. I had Kyle Roe write up some general troubleshooting instructions for you.
As with all software installations, there are times when WindowsEmbeddedCompact7.exe cannot complete the install successfully. Great effort has been made prevent the installation from failing. Sometimes the installation requires other software to be installed first. In the case of Platform Builder, Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 are the prerequisites. Windows Embedded Compact 7 will search for the prerequisites when it starts. This is part of the action taken while the Splash screen is displayed. ( as a side note, the Splash screen can be moved to show the program has not locked up.)
So what happens if the prerequisites are not found?
You, the user, will see Red X’s next to options that require prerequisites to be meet.
