Build System Tools (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


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.
