As it has come up several times recently.

I have created a guide to setting up a Windows CE Development Environment in a Virtual Machine.

I've written it for Hyper-V because, assuming that you have Windows 8.0, 8.1 or 10 Professional. The entire thing can be created for free* and works to an acceptable level.

* Assuming that you only target H/PC Pro and above

The guide covers:

- Setting up the Virtual Machine in Hyper-V
- Updating the Virtual Machine
- Getting remote access via SMB and VNC (with copy/paste support)
- Targeting Windows CE 2.0, 2.11 and 3.0 via Visual Studio (requires Visual Studio, non-free)
- Targeting Windows CE 2.11 and 3.0 via Embedded Visual Tools (all using free tools)

You can find the guide here:

Looks like you did an amazing job ...detailed and thorough! I appreciate the historical thumbnail sketch as to why WinCE never caught on...so true of the times. I remember seeing the first MS WinCE device and thinking this is going to wipe out all those Palm pilots, just like Netscape in the browser wars.

Assuming you have everything at hand, how much time can setting this up be expected to take?

Once you have everything to hand, a couple of hours assuming you have some experience with virtualisation and NT 4.
