When debugging a smart device project visual studio deploys the DLLs that are referenced by the project to the application path. For example system.windows.forms.dll, system.draweing.dll.

This happens even when the latest versions of the DLLs are present in the GAC and/or the application path. This is slowing down debugging as deploying these DLLs takes 3-4 minutes every time.

Is there any way to stop this happening

That means you have a reference to one or more desktop assembly, directly or indirectly. That also means your application is invalid. Make sure to find and remove it. See this.

One of the projects in my class library was a desktop .NET class library, changed to .NETCF and all is working as expected.

Thanks.
