Stamping a Run-Time Image (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


When you are ready to release a run-time image, you can stamp the run-time image with a license key that you have obtained from a distributor.

After you have licensed a run-time image, you can choose to convert the run-time image (.bin) file to a different format.

  1. Make sure that you have selected a Release configuration of your OS design to build a run-time image from.

  2. From the Build menu, verify that Make Run-Time Image After Build and Copy Files to Release Directory After Build are selected.

  3. From the Build menu, select Build and Sysgen to build your run-time image.

  4. From the Tools menu, select Platform Builder for CE 6.0, and then select License Run-Time Image to stamp your .bin file with the license key.

  5. In the License Run-Time Image dialog box, in the Run-time key field, enter the run-time key.

  6. Browse to the location of the run-time image file that you want to license, and then click License.

  1. From the Build menu, select Open Release Directory in Build Window to open a command line build window.

  2. Run the Cvrtbin tool to convert your .bin file to the format that you want.
