Can any body help me on this. I need to develop a small web application in VS 2005 which should be accessed via Blackberry . I could n't find Blackberry plug in /SDK for VS 2005. I have downloded Blackberry V2.0 but it works only for VS 2008 or later version. Is there any other solution to develop asp.net 2005 mobile web app for blackberry device. Your response is greatly appreciated...

Right now we only support Visual Studio 2008. We are looking at what our timing will be for supporting the new VS2010 but we don't have plans to support back to 2005.

I just have one quick question. As an alternative solution If i develop this with asp.net mobile web forms in VS 2005, will it work on blackberry devices?. Is it compatible or we must use Blackberry SDK for accessing application vi Blackberry device.

That depends on the OS version of the BlackBerry device.
Before OS 4.6 it is unlikely that they will work. There wasn't any dynamic HTML in those older browsers.

Is there any Blackberry Simulator to test asp.net mobile web forms developed in VS 2005?. The application must work on Blackberry devices but i couldnt find Blackberry simulator for testing which is developed in VS 2005. I have downloded Openwave simulator and my test application is working fine with Openwave but not sure it will work with Blackberry. Can you please sugegst.
Do i need install BES server for my asp.net mobile application deployment or IIS can alone take care.
Please guide me ..I am very new to mobile development.

We have simulators for any model/OS combination you can think of
You will want to download one or more of our BlackBerry smartphone simulators found here:
You will also need to download the "BlackBerry Email and MDS Services simulator" and run it. This simulator acts like a connection proxy for the simulators. The MDS simulator download can be found at the bottom of the following page:
1) Download and install MDS and Device simulators
2) Run MDS Simulator
3) Run device simulator
4) Open browser on the device simulator to your page URL
Hopefully that helps

I have installed BlackBerry Email and MDS Services simulator , Blackberry smart phone simulator 5.0 and followed the steps which you have mentioned. I tried to test it with my .NET URL but I am getting "connection refused" error. Same error when i test with other web sites(google.com, gmail.com). Did i miss anything?
