I just recently upgrade to VS2012 and I'm a little confused reading about the new .NET CF 3.9 so I'm hoping someone here can clear up my confusion.
Back when I was using VS2008 I wrote some software for my company. The software ran on a HP iPAQ PDA and was a data entry software. When VS2010 came out it no longer supported the .NET CF but now I'm reading that VS2012 will support a new version of the CF (3.9) starting Q1 2013. When I search on Microsoft's site though I see links saying "Evaluate Compact 7 for free today." Back when I wrote the iPAQ software everything was free. Visual Studion had a project type for mobile devices and the .NET CF was a free install. Now it looks like to write anything for a mobile device it is an extra fee.
Am I missing something? Is the Compact 7 different then the .NET CF 3.9? Is there any installs to add a mobile device project type to VS2012?
I know it would be easier if my company just upgrade our devices but they don't want to spend the money when the HP iPAQ are still functioning. I would like to update the software on it, I just hate having to work on the PDA software with VS2008 and then the companion desktop application with VS2012.
In the meantime, is there anyway I could currently work on the PDA application with VS2012?
