How to Configure and Build a Run-Time Image for a CEPC (Windows CE 5.0)
Before building a run-time image for a CEPC, you might need to change settings in the Platform Builder IDE. Whether you do depends on your CEPC hardware requirements and your development goals. Also, you might need to configure your run-time image to reside in a larger amount of RAM than the default amount of 28 MB specified the Config.bib file. If you want to support kernel debugging, profiling, or other build options, you must specify these options in the IDE.
Hardware and Software Assumptions
- You have set up a CEPC.
For more information, see How to Set Up a CEPC.
To track your progress in the following table, select the check box next to each step.
|1. Use the New Platform Wizard to select a design template and the initial components for your OS design.
For more information about the platform creation process, see Creating an OS Design with the New Platform Wizard.

|2. Customize your OS design by selecting items from the Catalog or deleting items from your OS design.||Adding an Item from the Catalog|
|3. Configure settings for your OS design based on your development goals.
For more information about OS design settings that you can configure, see Platform Settings.
|Modifying OS Design Settings|
|4. Check the dependencies of the Catalog items in your OS design.
You do not need to build your run-time image to view the dependencies.

|5. Modify the MEMORY section in the Config.bib file by setting the environment variable that specifies the amount of RAM on your CEPC hardware or the amount of RAM you want to simulate.
By default, the Config.bib file specifies 28 MB of RAM, and then OAL scans for additional memory at run time, for up to a total of 64 MB.
For information about adding support for more than 64 MB of RAM, see Supporting or Simulating More than 64 MB of RAM.
