Microsoft Device Emulator

The Microsoft Device Emulator is a standalone version of the same ARM based Device Emulator that ships as part of Visual Studio 2005. The standalone emulator is intended for situations when you want to demonstrate or test your application on a computer that does not have Visual Studio 2005 installed. Features: runs code compiled for ARM processors rather than for x86 processors; supports synchronizing with ActiveSync; provides support for more development environments.

Version 3 is the new automation API for the device emulator manager, which allows developers programmatic access to perform the same operations on installed emulator images that can be performed interactively on the Device Emulator Manager drop-down and context menus.
