Build System Tools (Windows CE 5.0)
Platform Builder contains a variety of command-line tools, which make up the build system, to perform tasks such as creating and building run-time images.
The integrated development environment (IDE) is a thin layer over these tools, so you can use these tools in a command-line prompt build window to work with workspaces.
The following table shows the command-line tools and their functions.
|Build Demo tool (Blddemo.bat)||Calls all tools necessary to create Microsoft Windows CE–based OS functionality, generate source code, copy files to a release directory, and make a run-time image.|
|Build Release Directory tool (Buildrel.bat)||Copies all modules and files required to build the run-time image to a common release directory.|
|Build tool (Build.exe)||Creates executable files for the target device.|
|Cesysgen Batch File (Cesysgen.bat)||Specifies the Windows CE–based modules and functionality for the target device.|
|fMerge Tool (fmerge.exe)||Combines all existing binary image builder (.bib) files into one .bib file, and all registry (.reg) files into one .ini file.|
|Make Binary Image tool (Makeimg.exe)||Creates a run-time image.|
|Master Build tool (Cebuild.bat)||Creates the Windows CE–based modules and functionality and builds source code for each project in an OS design.|
|Set Environment Variable tool (Setenv.bat)||Sets customized developer environment variables. Used by Wince.bat; do not call this tool directly.|
|Sysgen Tool (Sysgen.bat)||Creates the Windows CE–based modules selected in Cesysgen.bat by linking the functionality specified in Cesysgen.bat.|
|Sysgenplatform Tool (Sysgenplatform.bat)||Links the files in your run-time image during the Sysgen phase of the build process.|
|Windows CE Build Environment tool (Wince.bat)||Sets up the Windows CE build environment.|
