We successfully managed to build Windows Mobile 6.5.3 apps using RhoMobile 4.0.0.beta.28 suite.
Here is what I found on my way.

I followed the instruction at RhoMobile Docs and installed VS 2008.
BTW you can find the Spanish version of VS 2008 trial version at here
Then I downloaded and installed Windows Professional 6.5.3 DTK from the link here
Now I tried rake device:wm:production
It gave me the error:
[source language=”ruby”]
RET: Generador de proyectos de Microsoft (R) Generador de proyectos de Visual C+
+ – Versión de línea de comandos 9.00.21022

RET:

[/source]
I fixed it by using Visual studio provided command prompt. This command prompt will have the VS 2008 system environment variables set with it.
but i still got the same error.
Now I copied and pasted the language specific dll files from /vcpackages/3082 to /vcpackages folder as per a hint given in MS discussion forum.
I copied 11 .dll files into it.
Now I tried running rake device:wm:production but the below error
[source language=”ruby”]
vcbuild.exe : error VCBLD0007: no se pudo encontrar la configuración del proyect
o RELEASE|WINDOWS MOBILE 6 PROFESSIONAL SDK (ARMV4I) para compilar.
RET:
[/source]
I understood I need to specify the target WM device as per the instruction given at http://docs.rhomobile.com
So, I made my build.yml to looks like
[source language=”ruby”]
wm:
sdk: “Windows Mobile 6.5.3 Professional DTK (ARMV4I)”
[/source]
Voila.. thats it, my cab file started generating after few minutes.
Now I can generate RhoMobile Windows Professional 6 apps.

  1. Will you not be prompted for RhoElements license? Which device have you tested it on?
