Windows CE: Remote Tools issue

I am sure you’ve all experienced this problem once in a while: you are debugging your Windows CE system, you are starting a remote tool but the connection somehow doesn’t establish or fails!

So what do you do now? No matter how often you retry you will never get a connection to the remote tool. You might try to restart your Platform Builder and if that doesn’t help restart your machine but that’s just annoying and time consuming! A better solution would be to open the task manager on you development machine, go to the processes tab and kill the cemgr.exe (CE Manager).
If you now restart the remote tool, it should connect and work!

Have fun!

If you want to check your processes and threads on the WinCE device from your development PC, you can use the Remote Task Monitor for WinCE.
