Debugging Resources Overview (Windows CE 5.0)
Windows Mobile 5.0 is equipped with a variety of tools that allow a user to thoroughly test and debug a platform. In addition, documentation for several features includes additional debugging help. For more information, see Feature-specific Debugging Resources.
The following table describes the debugging and testing tools available through Windows Mobile 5.0.
|Debugging and testing tool||Description|
|The kernel debugger is a full-featured debugging system that controls the behavior of an operating system (OS) image. It stops all hardware interrupts, halts the entire OS, and provides full-featured debugging support, including the following:
|Target Control Window||The Target Control dialog box provides useful command-line debugging options. Use these options to
|CeLog Event Tracking||The CeLog event tracking subsystem provides powerful and highly customizable event tracking.|
|Hardware-assisted Debugging||Hardware-assisted debugging allows you to debug even when the target does not yet have a working bootloader or operating system.
The following list describes some hardware-assisted debugging methods you can use with Windows CE.
|The Emulator simulates the behavior of a Windows CE-based target device on your development workstation.|
|Remote Tools||Remote Tools allow you to use a development workstation to remotely perform a variety of programming tasks on a Microsoft® Windows® CE–based target device.
|Core Connectivity||The Core Connectivity infrastructure manages the communications between a desktop computer and a Windows CE-based target device. Core Connectivity allows you to download an application or run-time image to a target device, and to connect to that device for development and debugging.|
|Windows CE Test Kit||The Windows CE Test Kit (CETK) is a tool that you can use to test device drivers that you develop for the Windows Mobile operating system (OS).|
