Developing OS Design Elements (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)
After you have developed the core elements of your BSP, you can add and customize other elements of your OS design. The following topics can help you further develop elements of your OS design.
- Customizing the File System
Describes how to customize the file system by modifying the registry type, changing how the file system stores data, and adding support for user profiles.
- Troubleshooting: Performance Insufficient
Contains a list of descriptions of common performance problems with either the OS or the target devices, and provides suggestions for resolving the problems. Contains comparative information on the two registry types (object store and hive based). Includes a list that shows the common use of various types of memory on a target device.
- Windows Embedded CE Features
Provides links and information about items that you can select in the Catalog and functionality that you can include in your OS designs.
