SubSystem Property in the project file RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Experts,

    We are porting our product to WinCE(5.0 and 6.5.3, and 7), and we generate the project file using a script. We want to support using VS2005 and VS2008 at least.

    In the project file, we specify the SubSystem Property as 9, like following:

    SubSystem="9"

    It works for VS2005, since when opening the project in VS2005, I can see the system is "WindowsCE (/SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWSCE)", but in VS2008, the system is just "9", and the build process shows it is not targeted for WindowsCE.

    When building the project with an SDK created for Windows Embedded Compact 7, the linker just says, "9" is an invalid subsystem.

    So, what's the portable value for this property of "SubSystem" in the project file ?  I've tried "WindowsCE" and "WindowsCE (/SUBSYSTEM:WINDOWSCE)", but neither works.

    Thanks,

    -Winter
