  1. Windows Phone 7 Wake On Lan is live…..

    June 14, 2012 by The Man

    Well for some it is, 7 downloads already, I cannot see it yet but here is a link anyway


    So two days later and I still cannot see it in the store. Not a great start so had to put in a support ticket with Microsoft. Will keep you updated.

    Update 2

    Well a quick support email and within 30 minutes we are live…..

  2. Installing Windows Phone 7 dev tools on XP

    December 16, 2010 by The Man

    Not sure why but you can. Follow these steps.

    1. Download the Windows Phone 7 dev tools from Microsoft
    2. Extract out from the download vm_web.exe /x
    3. Edit baseline.dat in notepad and change InstallOnLHS=0 and InstallOnWinXP=0
    4. Run setup /web
    5. Sit back and watch, there might be a few errors

    On my install the phone emulator does not work but the developer does.
