Silverlight for Windows Embedded is a native code (C++) UI framework that enables a new designer/developer paradigm that will dramatically improve the user interfaces on devices and the time and cost needed to deliver a differentiated experience. Leveraging familiar tools like Expression Blend, designers can quickly and easily design rich, compelling UIs for embedded devices on the Windows Embedded CE platform. At the same time, developers implement the code-behind with Visual Studio and Platform Builder.
“In order to use Silverlight for Windows Embedded you’ll need to install following applications: Windows Embedded Compact 7.0 CTP, Microsoft Expression Blend 3, and Visual Studio 2008.”
