Windows Ce 5.0 Platform Builder With Armv4i Download ((HOT))
Well, I'm trying to do this schoolprojekt, where i sould install and run win CE 6.0 to my typical desktop PC (intel M prosessor). Now I have VS and platform puilder blugin installed. Build of my OSdesign (CEPC:x86) goes trough without errors (a few warnings), mut I can't get the emulator running. I have folloved Mike Hall:s tutorials, mut it always says "Missing or Invalid ROMimage".
Windows ce 5.0 platform builder with armv4i download
During the LiveDisk installation Eboot (Microsoft WinCE bootloader) is stored into the NOR Flash. It can be used to establish a connection with Platform Builder for further debugging or image download. On power up, U-boot initializes hardware and transfers control to Eboot, which automatically loads the WinCE image from NAND Flash after the predefined time out interval (1s).
Here are the basic steps needed to get a custom Windows CE 5.0 based SDK integrated in Visual Studio 2005.- Get Platform Builder 5.0- download and install the DeviceEmulator BSP- Build an OS Design: choose 'DeviceEmulator as target platform- Roll an SDK for the created OS design- Install SDKNow you should have a Windows CE 5.0 emulator you can use from VS2005.For more details: see Barry Bond's answer in this thread.
Ok, I ran the install (Device Emulator BSP for windows CE 5.0 Import) , but the system says I need the Platform Builder so I went to Microsoft downloads and I am not sure what version I need to download... Any ideas? I am using MS Visual Studio 2005, we plan to deploy to a windows ce 5.0 framework 2.0 device...

First of all you need to install Microsoft's Platform Builder for Windows CE 5.0. If asked during install for which platforms, you must select ARMV4I and XScale. If you already have an installation, you can add those platform, by running the Platform-Builder installer. Before using the latest Trizeps-BSP, update the Platform-Builder usingMicrosoft's download page.Install the Keith&Koep BSP for Trizeps IV.
Windows CE has seen three generations of emulators. The first supported Windows CE by directly calling the roughly equivalent Windows NT functions. It was a good first start, but left much to be desired. The second generation emerged as a custom embedded platform using hardware virtualization, running the same low-level instructions as a real device. It was a very capable emulator, but had a drawback for developers who were focused on deploying to non-x86 processors since it was built using the I86 instruction set. A third-generation emulator, which ships with CE 6.0, provides instruction-level emulation of the ARM V4I instruction set. This emulator ships with the CE 6.0 Platform Builder as the Device Emulator.
Another area in which security improvements have been made is in the Windows CE OS Design (or the New Platform) Wizard. When a platform is configured with a feature that may compromise the security of the device, a security warning is issued. For example, Figure 3 shows the notification displayed when the Object Exchange (OBEX) Protocol is included in a platform. Details of the potential compromise are provided, to help platform developers address the potential problems early in the platform development process.
It was strange at first to start Visual Studio 2005 when I wanted to configure and build a new CE 6.0 platform, but I quickly learned how Windows CE 5.0 settings and commands mapped to Visual Studio. The command to create a new Windows CE platform is similar in the two versions. For Windows CE 5.0, you would select the File New Platform... menu item. For CE 6.0, you select the File New Project... menu. With CE 6.0 tools installed, a new project type gets added to the Visual Studio New Project window. The project type is named "Platform Builder." Figure 4 shows this change, along with a new project template for "OS Design."
Apart from a few refinements, the remainder of the OS Design Wizard will be familiar to anyone with experience with the Windows CE 5.0 Platform Builder. As in the earlier version, the first step in defining a new platform is the selection of one or more Board Support Packages (BSPs). After that, the wizard prompts for a design template, which serves as a platform's initial configuration. Some of the Windows CE 5.0 design templates have been renamed; in some cases older design templates appear as design template variants. What was known as Tiny Kernel in Windows CE 5.0 has been renamed Small Footprint Device in CE 6.0, but otherwise it represents a minimum set of operating system features for a headless Windows CE-powered platform.
With CE 6.0, Microsoft continues a program that began with Windows CE 3.0-the shared source program. Taking a cue from the open source movement, Microsoft began by making available a significant portion of the source code for Windows CE to anyone willing to download the Evaluation edition of the Windows CE Platform Builder.
- made sure KITL enabled build setting is on and all the KITL settingsin the connectivity options are checked.-Tried debug and release builds- I am trying to use KITL Tranpsort as transport and CESH as startupserver - I get the error "Unable to load device side components. Pleasecheck server configuration settings". These settings worked fine underCE 5.0 platform builder (and still does).- tried running both the CE 5.0 and CE 6.0 versions of the remote toolsdirectly by launching the .exe's without success.- I have tried all other remote connection methods/combos(KITL/CESH/MANUAL) without success.What should I check I should have component-wise in my build to getthis working - as far as I can tell, my build has the same componentsas my CE 5.0 version.
I have an ARM board with a Cirrus EDB9302 processor. I have downloaded their BSP for platform builder 6.0 and it compiles fine (in VS2005 with platform builder 6.0) )and provides the correct output files etc. In the project properties I enable KTL and the kernel debugger and I also select debug mode as opposed to release for the build type. Everything seems to build fine - no errors etc. I can install the generated eboot loader onto the board through an application that came from Cirrus.My problem is that under the target/connectivity options menu it does not show any options for download/transport/debugger. It just has "None" in all three boxes. I know I should get an option for ethernet in transport at least along with some other options. What has gone wrong here? Is it because this is the evaluation platform builder? I am running Visual Studio 2005 professional edition. Do I need to uninstall Active Sync perhaps? I've already tried shutting it down and running multiple instances of VS2005. There must be a setting I have missed somewhere.Anyones help would be much appreciated.Thank you
VS2005 pro is what I'm using with CE6.I'm using outlook express for the newsgroup and I have a button "New Post" to start a new thread.Have you included corecon in your platform? It's my understanding that corecon replaces platform manager in CE6 as the mechanism for KITL to operate.Regards,Gary"B-Dawg" wrote in message news:5BAC8FB9-69BE-42A3...@microsoft.com...
Thanks for your replies - much appreciated.I am out of town at the moment Gary so I cannot verify that I have included corecon in the build so I will need to do that and get back to you.In response to Dean I am building the standard Cirrus EDB9302 BSP (no mods) it does not give me any options in the target/connectivity options menu but I think it should because in the readme doc that comes with it it says that after the build and the download of the bootloader I should then connect to the device using VS2005 and download the nk.nb0 (I think they even give pictures of the target/connectivity options menu showing the options I should have but don't). This would be silly of them if they hadn't given me a build that would be able to do that (ie missing corecon if Gary is right).I haven't tried deleting all the named devices but I have tried creating my own new ones - but still the same effect - "None" is the only option in all the drop down boxes which is the case with the default "CE Device" which I presume is the one I should be using.What are you thoughts on Active Sync (on my PC) perhaps interferring in this process? Seems unlikely to me. I have been using it to connect to a PDA to develop some code recently.I think it might be time for a reinstall of platform builder and/or VS2005 after checking the corecon thing...Cheers,Bevan
After trying lots of various things I ended up just biting the bullet and reinstalling Visual Studio and CE Platform Builder and it now works. I was trying to avoid reinstalling platform builder as it is a massive download so thank goodness it now works. I tried deleting the folder that Yan suggested and it did nothing.Therefore I must conclude that something got corrupted either at or soon after the first install a couple of weeks or so ago of Platform Builder (unless it was something in Visual Studio itself from before).I'm looking forward to being able to finally play with the embedded ARM board I've had for a while now.Cheers,Bevan 041b061a72
