If you want to develop a .Net Compact Framework app that actually runs on the device, look at the EMDK for .Net. Latest as of today is 2.9. There are sample apps and a help file to get you started. Look through the release notes to see what the requirements are for the development environment.
Another option might be to use Enterprise Browser on the device and write a web app that runs on IIS (or any other web server). In this case you can use any version of Visual Studio that you want, since the app is actually running on the server, not the device.
