Windows Mobile Developer SetupPosted: September 6, 2011
Here are the things you will need to get started building a windows mobile app.
1. Windows 7 (Link)
For this I’ll be using VMWare Fusion since I’m on a mac.
2. Zune Software (Link)
This is like having iTunes. I’ll be installing version 4.8
3. Windows Phone Developer Tools (Link)
This is a custom version of Visual Studio as far as I can tell. According to Microsoft:
The Windows Phone Software Development Kit (SDK) 7.1 provides you with all of the tools that you need to develop applications and games for both Windows Phone 7.0 and Windows Phone 7.5 devices.
With this stuff installed you should be able to write a simple hello world app.
