Dear All;
This makes me crazy , I have Visual studio Ultimate 2010 and trying to install WM6.5 SDK the error appears that I must install the VS2005 SP1 , so I download a lot of versions and try it but the same error says, the patch trying to upgrade or update doesn't exists, that means I have downloaded the upgrade patch not the VS2005 SP1 it self. so kindly what I have to do ??

From the MSDN[^] site:
Visual Studio 2010 does not support mobile application development for versions of Windows Phone prior to Windows Phone OS 7.0.

For information about using Visual Studio 2010 to create applications for Windows Phone OS 7.0, see Windows Phone Development and Silverlight for Windows Phone.

For Visual Studio 2008 mobile developers, Microsoft released the Windows Mobile 6.5 Developer Tool Kit, which works with the Windows Mobile 6 SDK.

Because Visual Studio 2010 does not support mobile application development for Windows Phone prior to Windows Phone OS 7.0, you cannot use the following features: .NET Compact Framework projects, Visual C++ device projects, smart device CAB projects, Device Emulator and Device Emulator Manager, testing tools for device projects, and Device Security Manager.

Mobile application development is still supported in earlier versions of Visual Studio, such as Visual Studio 2008. For more information about smart device projects, see Windows Mobile Developer Center and Smart Device Development in Visual Studio 2008.

So if you want to use WM6.5 SDK you will need to use an previous of Visual Studio.

The SDK only supports 20 Professional, so it will not work with the Express edition.
