The Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit adds documentation, sample code, gesture APIs, header and library files, emulator images and tools to Visual Studio that let you build applications for Windows Mobile 6.5.

Even if you’re not a WM developer, if you support Windows Mobile devices, you should download these emulator images.

Emulator Images Included:

  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional Square Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional QVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional WQVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional VGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional WVGA Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard Square Emulator
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Standard QVGA Emulator

Hint: You don’t need Visual Studio to use these emulator images. But if you want to these emulators to be able to communicate across the network and access the web, you’ll probably want to download and install Virtual PC 2007 (30.4 MB) if you haven’t done so already. The reason being; We just need the virtual network adapter, which is installed automatically when you install VPC 2007 – after that, we don’t need VPC 2007 anymore for the WM6.5 emulators.

Configuring the Windows Mobile 6.5 emulator to connect to the Internet

Once you’ve gotten the emulators downloaded and installed, here’s how you connect one to the network:

  1. Make sure Virtual PC 2007 is already installed (see box above).
  2. Open the emulator from the Windows Start Menu.
    Start Menu location of WM6.5 emulators
    The emulator should show a splash screen…
    WM 6.5 - Splash screen
    …and then drop you into the WM6.5 operating system.
  3. In the emulator choose File / Configure
    WM 6.5 - Configuration
  4. On the Network tab, check the Enable NE2000 PCMCIA network adapter to bind to, choose your network card, and click OK.
    WM 6.5 - Choosing a network card
  5. In the emulator, click on Start, then click on Settings
    WM6.5 - Start / Settings
  6. Click on Connections
    WM6.5 - Connections
  7. Click on Connections again
    WM6.5 - Connections again
  8. Click on the Advanced tab at the bottom, and choose Select Networks
    WM6.5 - Advanced / Select Networks
  9. Set both selections to My Work Network, and click OK twice.
    WM6.5 - My Work Network for both
  10. Once you’re back at the Today screen, click Start and then click Internet Explorer
    WM6.5 - Start / Internet Explorer
  11. On the Internet Explorer Mobile page, try searching on something to test your internet connectivity.
    WM6.5 - Search Page
  12. If you’ve done everything properly (including installing Virtual PC 2007 in the box above) you should be connected to the Internet.
    WM6.5 - Search Results 
  13. When you’re done using the emulator, you can choose File / Save State and Exit and the next time you launch the emulator (Step 2 above), you’ll pick up right back where you left off – already connected to the Internet.
    WM 6.5 - Saving State
    If you get prompted to enable the network card the next time you launch the emulator, just choose Yes.
    WM6.5 - Enable network card
