CoreCon Libraries.

The files required for the Compact Forms Designer and for deployment to emulators/devices are found in:

Windows XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\USER-ACCOUNT\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CoreCon\1.0


C:\Users\USER-ACCOUNT\ \AppData\Local\Microsoft\CoreCon\1.0

When you create a new user account, those files are all copied by the Operating System from the 'default' users account settings to the new users settings directory.

For example:

C:\Documents and Settings\THE-NEW-USER-ACCOUNT\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CoreCon\1.0

But, they are only copied once, upon the very 1st login to the new account. This means if you login as the default user, install all of the SDKs required, ActiveSync and Emulator 3.0, and you then create some new user accounts, the new users will get the required files. The problem is the automatic copy by the OS only happens once.

So if the user accounts were already created and had been logged into before you installed the SDKs, etc. then they won't have the required files. And if you add additional SDKs to the default account they also won't be available to the other accounts.

The solution for now is to just copy the entire directory;

C:\Documents and Settings\USER-ACCOUNT-THAT-WORKS\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CoreCon\1.0


C:\Documents and Settings\ANY-USER-ACCOUNT-THAT-FAILS\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\CoreCon\1.0

After that all accounts should work.
