Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Hello. I'm wondering if anyone has or knows where to get windows CE (between 1.0 and 4.0 of CE) because i want to download it and try it out in a virtual machine and im having trouble finding those versions (and their iso's) online.

AFAIK these were not released as standalone OS, but rather customized for each device.
IIRC you'd need the Platform Builder (or whatever it was called back in those versions) to build your own customized version.
Alternatively, you'll have to look for "firmware" from devices that used these versions; however they'll probably be somehow locked to the devices (ie. only having the drivers for the particular device, etc)
This is my understanding, so I may be wrong; hopefully someone else can confirm

Platform builder and the CEPC target is your best bet.

2.11, 3.0 and 4 something are out there.

1.0 was only released to OEM's, and as far as I know never made any wide release. That all changes with 2, which lacked things like high resolution VGA (320x200!!!!) or and IDE driver. 3.0 had better video, but still no IDE. I believe 4.x is much better.

Well, 2.11 was given out at trade shows.

I've got a 60 day evaluation copy somewhere, which I've never even tried.

4 CDs for Platform Builder itself, and an extra one for "Platform Builder Guide".
