Visual Studio 2005 Device Command Shell [v0.98]
The Device Command Shell (DCS) is a very useful tool if you do Pocket PC, aka Smart Device, development using Visual Studio 2005.
DCS is a Command Window addin that gives you command line access to the most common operations during PPC development: copy files, edit the registry, list/start/stop processes, install DLLs etc. The list of commands continues to grow with each release:
CE RegSvr (new in 0.98)
You can download the Device Command Shell and documentation from my GotDotNet workspace. Set up the aliases above by performing these steps after installing DCS:
- Bring up the command window: go to the "View" menu, select "Other Windows", then "Command Window”.
- Enter the following command: DeviceCommandShell.Connect.DeviceCommandShell alias
I have one wish for DCS team: I hope they create a version that works 2003 as well. This thing is just too useful to have to wait for VS2005!
