Using the Kernel Debugger with a Run-Time Image Built From a Release Configuration (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


You can use the kernel debugger with a run-time image built from the Release configuration that Platform Builder provides.

Because of optimization, however, a run-time image built from a Release configuration provides a more limited debugging experience. It may not provide the level of debugging support you require.

If you want full symbolic debugging information, and full debugger access to processes, threads and modules, then build a run-time image from the Debug configuration that Platform Builder provides. For more information, see Levels of Debugging Support.

  1. From the Project menu, choose Properties.

  2. In the navigation pane, expand Configuration Properties, and then select Build Options.

  3. In the Build Options window, clear the Enable kernel debugger [no IMGNODEBUGGER=1] check box.

  4. Choose OK to close the Properties dialog box.

  5. With these settings, when you build your run-time image, support for the kernel debugger is built into the run-time image.
