If you are talking CE 6 you need VS2005/Platform Builder CE6. You can use one of the standard BSP’s distributed with PB (CEPC, Device Emulator, MainstoneIII)
To create and build (sysgen) and example osdesign. If it makes it all the way through without any errors you probably have everything installed ok.
Same with CE7, you can install VS2008/Platform Builder CE7 and do the same with one of the distributed BSPs.
Note: you CAN NOT install both CE6 and CE7 platform builders on the same development box! See readme notes for CE7.
There are no native drivers for the Caspa camera on either the CE6 or CE7 BSP.
I contacted the manufacture of the imager used on the Caspa and was informed there are no CE drivers available and they do not believe one has ever been developed.
You would have to develop one from scratch… which is no small task.
I have experimented with USB based camera some time back. Microsoft did distribute a USB camera driver way back when.
It can be made to work with CE 6 and maybe CE 7 (have not tried on CE7).
It worked OK for low res stuff but not great for anything >640x480 because of bus limitations.

Hi David, I managed to install the CE 6 dev platform and also VS 2005. How can i check it to ensure it is correclty setup before purchasing your bsp source code?
by the way did you get the camera driver for over caspa working in CE 7?
