hello guys,

i am writing a pocket pc project using vb.net 2005. just this morning i opened up my project
and I got the following error..

error retrieving information from user datastore.

and then

"the project could not be opened because it refers to a device platform that
does not exist in your datastore."

I haver been unsuccessful at fixing this problem.

so far I have tried

deleting the contents of the Corecon directory in both the
user store and the all user store as outlined
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms184403.aspx

i have also tried re-installing the program
and re-installing the windows mobile 5.0 sdk and the ppc 2003 sdk still with
no luck..

I am at a lost as to what to do. i have lost a whole days work on this problem :(

Could someone shed some light please.

thanks very much!!

Nathan

Uninstalling and reinstalling WM 5.0 should work. You might find this post helpful http://www.danielmoth.com/Blog/2006/04/device-platform-not-found.html.

i have managed to sort this problem out...

I followed these instructions http://support.microsoft.com/ kbid=907965 and then did a complete re-install.

In regards to the the Windows Mobile 5.0 SDK examples that give the error "Error retrieving information user datastore. Platform not found."

I created new Windows Mobile 5.0 projects... and then brought in the example SDK code.

The issue is resolved for me.

Reinstallation of WM5 SDK + ActiveSync resolved my problem.

None of the above solved my problem, but this did:

Just uncheck the T-SQL-box when attaching to the process.
