Error while opening pbxml file

If you have the following error while opening a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 OSdesign, that means that in the path to this OSDesign there is a space character.

Platform Builder reported an error while trying to load the OS design file:
System.ArgumentException: Invalid characters in path.
The OS design could not be loaded.

The solution is to remove this or those space characters from the path to your OSDesign files, by simply removing the space or replacing the space by an underscore (_). Usually OSDesign files are located inside the OSDesign subfolder of the WINCE600 folder. By default the WINCE600 is located at the root on the C hard drive.

Do not move your OSDesign to your desktop, as this one is located in C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Desktop, and this path contains a space !!
