Windows CE with Visual Studio 2008 Pro

Hello.



I've tried to do performance profiling on a Windows CE (MFC-)application which runs on a CE device connected via ActiveSync



I've done the steps shown in this video here.



But if I try to start profiling and hit the run button on the 'Run Settings' dialog I get this message:



---------------------------

AQtime

---------------------------

Unknown binary format of the c:\Projects\MFCCe\Debug\MFCCe01.exe module.

---------------------------

Help   OK   

---------------------------



Your FAQ says that QAtime 'supports' Windows CE with Visual Studio 2005. But I use Visual Studio 2008.



My first question:

Is there any way to use AQtime with Windows CE and Visual Studio 2008?



My second question:

Why do I get this error message? because I use VS 2008 instead of VS 2005 or is there another problem?



Thank you in advance

    Hello Andreas,


    Why do I get this error message? because I use VS 2008 instead of VS 2005 or is there another problem?


    Please note that AQtime does not support Performance profiling of Windows CE applications. You can only use the Static Analysis profilers for Windows CE applications.

    You may use AQtime's Static Analysis profilers for your Windows CE applications. Other profilers for such applications are not supported.

    As a workaround, you can try retargeting your application to the Win32 platform and profile it while it is running as a Win32 application rather than with the Windows CE device.


    I hope this information helps you. Please let us know if you need anymore assistance.

    Thank you.
