This SharePoint demonstration Content Pack provides the content and scripts to support a demo based on the SharePoint 2010 developer introduction session presented on numerous occasions by Mike Ammerlaan, Paul Andrew, and others. It also includes a set of hands on labs for learning SharePoint 2010 development. It is intended for use with a specific Virtual Machine listed in the Installation & Setup section.
A while back I discovered that it was possible to do kernel mode debugging of an OS on a virtual machine (VM) running under Virtual PC using a single computer. Even if you are not concerned with debugging a device driver, kernel mode debugging can be useful for debugging applications on Windows Embedded Standard when a failure occurs in the system rather than the application itself. I have personally used this technique to verify that a Windows Embedded Standard runtime OS has at least began the boot process. I highly recommend the following book for more information on debugging: Advanced Windows Debugging (Addison-Wesley Microsoft Technology Series), by Mario Hewardt, and Daniel Pravat.
Typically for kernel mode debugging, we use two physical devices with a null modem cable connected between the serial ports. In Virtual PC, we can create a virtual null Mmodem cable between the development machine and the Target VM using Named Pipes.
The steps below will walk you through how to setup and begin kernel debugging from a development machine running WinDbg (available here) and a Target VM running a Windows Embedded Standard runtime OS.
