Setting up the dev environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    Ive installed the Platform Builder for Embedded Compact 7 and I have been following the steps in the 'Getting started with Virtual CEPC Guide'. As far as I can tell the installing Compact 7 steps completed successfully (although it took a while and I had to do some fiddling) but according to the guide I should now have an option in VS2008 to create a 'Platform Builder' project but this option isnt there.

    Do I need to enable anything or am I barking up the wrong tree?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi, 

    Manage the Windows Embedded Compact 7 installation and see if the Platform Builder component is installed (or has a cross mark). If not installed, install it. 

    If you had installed the WEC 7 prior to installing the VS2008 and the Service Pack recommended, the Platform Builder component may not be installed. So you may have to install it using the "Manage" option of the WEC7 installation.

  • It is a straight forward work. Go to File -> New -> Project

    In the New Project dialog box select Platform builder and again it will show OSdesign.

    Click the OSdesign and name your project and select the necessary components

    And build it
