Microsoft Windows CE 4.2 .net Logo
After some fussing and fuming on the part of legacy developers and OEM's, Microsoft have restored the availability of the free Integrated Development Environment (IDE) eVC++ for CE .net.

This will be a welcomed move for casual developers and OEM's who still make use of Windows CE .net in a production environment some 7 years after its initial release.

eVC++ allows developers to program in C++ for Windows CE .net devices without the need of the expensive Microsoft Visual Studio 2002 or higher IDE application.

HPC:Factor can report that the 2009 release of eVC++ is the original RTM version of eVC++ 4.0 without any Service Packs having been applied - a process known as slipstreaming.

The download is over 100MB smaller than the original release version due to the removal of the Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 installer from the binary. We strongly recommend that all users install Windows 2000 SP4 or Windows XP SP3 before installing eVC++ 4.0 on their systems.

A link to the download, as well as links to eVC++ 4.0's Service Packs and updates can be found in the HPC:Factor developers section at the link below.
