  • Hi Rohith,

    Please try Clean Sysgen.

    Have you tried it?

    With Regards

  • Hi nadini,

    I already tried clean sysgen

  • Hi Rohith,

    As the build is failing is sysgen Phase.Means its not entering into building of BSP.

    Its difficult to find out the reason.Try to build some other BSP(Ex:iMX27) with the same Visual Studio (Platform Builder).See weather it will get build or not.

    If with that also problem exists then try Build and Sysgen(Note:We should not use this build option(Build and Sysgen or Rebuild and clean Sysgen) more frequently as it may corrupt your  WinCE installation.

    Dear All,

    Correct me If my understanding is wrong.

    With Regards

  • Hi Nadini,

    (Note:We should not use this build option(Build and Sysgen or Rebuild and clean Sysgen) more frequently as it may corrupt your  WinCE installation.

    Many people told me about this problem...

    But why you suggested him to try Build and Sysgen??

    Is there any specific reason? Because if simply he try that, he may need to re-install the entire WINCE...

  • Hi nadini,

    my platform builder is working fine.I tried imx35 with another one bsp.That's building fine.

    So what will be the problem.How I can debug it.

  • Hi Rohith,


    So I guess We need to try with "Build and Sysgen"

    I feel you need to take decision to go for it or not.Because as I told some times it will corrupt the WinCE installation.

    Just check with the Sysgen variables are properly selected.

    With Regards

  • Hi Nadini,

    Let me why I need to do "Build and Sysgen"?

    Its first time I am building this new bsp.

  • Hi,

    You should check build.err (under WINCE600) to find the cause of the problem.

    Hope wince is properly installed. If on other machines the build is fine you might not have installed components properly.

    There should be no need to do build and sysgen. 

    Try pasting the build error from above mentioned file.

  • Hi,

    Check the environment variables in your machine for suspected entries. Sometimes presence of certain env variables for other programs can cause these(especially QNX).

    Hopefully you haven't changed any makefiles in public directory.

    Otherwise a reinstall would be wise.

  • it looks like some of the contents in make file is changed. It is not required to change any of the make files in CE build system.

    In make file missing of @ in some places .I added that and rebuilt.

    Now that error solved.some other error came.

  • Restore the makefile you changed to the original and remove all the TAB characters from the DCOM makefile.

    The problem is explained in detail here:

    This error is caused by TAB characters in the makefile in \WINCE600\PUBLIC\DCOM\CESYSGEN. Remember that you should NEVER EVER change anything in the PUBLIC or PRIVATE folders? Well, this is an exception. There's simply no way around this bug without changing the TAB characters to spaces, so:

    1. Open \WINCE600\PUBLIC\DCOM\CESYSGEN\makefile. in Visual Studio 2008
    2. Press CTRL-R, CTRL-W (this will turn on "View White Space")
    3. Replace all TAB characters in the file (recognizable by the right arrow character) with spaces
    4. Save the file

    PS. NEVER EVER DO A BUILD AND SYSGEN, no matter what people tell you!

  • Did you read the entire blog post at

    You're trying to clone CalibrUi, right? If so, the errors you describe are exactly as what is described in the blog post. Read it and follow the instructions. Everything is there to make it work...
