hey people.. how i can run the emulator? i've downloaded 3 times the .rar archive, but if i put it on the file XDE.exe the emulator doesn't start!

I've the same problem if i extract the .rar archive, and put the folder on the XDE.exe!

I know that i need a .bin file to start emulation.. but i can't be able to find it! Where i can found it?

I ditched the XDE_AppProv settings and have been trying different variations with some of the XML files and can only seem to break the shortcuts, not add any. Arg.

Not exactly helpful
Several people have asked how to run this wretched emualator package and we have at best received vague answers that don't help us. Is the concept of a simple image file that can simply be opened using file open too much to ask! Just like a VHD file for Virtual PC. I was under perhaps the naive, maybe wrong, assumption that what we were getting here is a WM7 device that through emulation would run in a virtual environment. Just like I build and run Windows 2008, Exchange 2007 etc I can actually boot up a real server in a vitrual isolated hardware environemnt! Is this not the purpose of this? I genuinely expected to open a file and for VS to run the file and emulate a Windows 7 mobile device just as if I had one in my hand, albeit with a number of things not being possible at this point in time. Is this what this is about or have I missed something? If not then how do I\We actually get the emulation to work please?

From what I can make out what we have here is a car emulator that shows you all around the engine but cannot even turn the igntion key! Unless you are a car engineer utterly pointless! In essence an emulator that doesn't emulate!!!!????

Good work guys...

Some points though...
  1. Its CE7 (Word is that the new multi-core CPU's from Qualcomm are due out mid this year for WP7)
  2. Its Silverlight 3 with some extra features, NOT Silverlight 4 (even though it states that in the Shell Core). Word is the next CTP it will be Silverlight 4.
  3. The emulator instruction set is x86.
  4. The HD2 pic is a fake.
  5. That is all

Then again I guess that wouldnt make things suitably complicated and cryptic!

I am not looking to become a programmer.

First, it's already been answered.
Second, it's not rocket science. From a command line run "xde.exe WM70C1.bin" or create a new windows phone development project and hit the play button
Third, this is for developers! If you're not a developer, it's useless to you so stop bitching about it. The only thing you can do (other than test your applications) is see some settings and browse the web with internet explorer. Whoopty friggen do.
Fourth, this thread is about modifying/researching the contents of the emulator ROM... not people who can't even figure out how to start the thing.

Mor correctly
So more correctly then and please feel free to correct me if I am mistaken here! It is an emulation platform for developing apps. That is not quite the same as an emulator. The word emulator does imply you can actually run the OS as if you had a physical device in your hand and hence why there is so much confusion I suspect? If so I agree this is pointless to non-programmers but the article did very much give the impression that you could run up a Windows Mobile 7 phone on a PC platform as if were a fully bootable ROM.

I always find it amazing how programmers think everything is so obvious! Well yes, anything is if you know it!

It works... with some errors but have working phone emulator
Here is how you do this:

-1 (forgot to add) download the developper tools (Visual Studio 10 express) from Microsoft:

can't post links so google:

Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

-.5 install these

1. download the bin from my previous link

2. rename the file to WM70C1.bin

3. go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\WindowsPhone\v7.0\Emulation\Images

4. rename the existing WM70C1.bin to WM70C1_old.bin

5. copy paste the downloaded bin file

Voila ...
