I have been playing with this and I have decided that it is not a job for a novice. I know what I am doing and what files are required, but it could be very frustrating if you are new to MRDS.
If you are new to MRDS, I suggest that you work with V1.5 for now. I will look at creating a new package for the next V2.0 CTP.
If you really want to try to run the code under the April 2008 CTP of V2.0, you must first install the package into a V1.5 installation.
The steps are:
1. Download and install V1.5 (assuming you do not have it already).
2. Download and install the ProMRDS samples. It will go into V1.5.
3. Copy the ProMRDS folder from V1.5 over to your V2.0 installation.
4. Open a DSS Command Prompt under V2.0.
5. Enter the command:
DssProjectMigration /b- ProMRDS
6. Open the sample code you want to run in Visual Studio and re-build it.
Note that there will be build problems with CF (Compact Framework) code and in a couple of cases I have noticed that you have to replace the references to MRDS DLLs.
I have also found that the DssProjectMigration tool does not always change the project settings properly. This is probably a CTP problem. Make sure that you check the project properties and in particular that the path to DssHost is correct for the V2.0 version.
You will also need to copy across the necessary files from store\media. This is a long list, so I won't include it here. In particular, you need the maze_textures folder. It probably does no harm to copy the entire store\media folder, but I can't make any guarantees about this.
Also, there are several batch scripts (.cmd) files in the bin folder that should be copied over. These are provided to help you to run the samples from a DSS command prompt, but they are not essential.
