Building a Device Driver from the Command Line (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


From the Platform Builder command line, you can build a device driver as a part of the larger process of creating a driver for use with the Windows Embedded CE operating system (OS).

  1. From the Build OS menu in the IDE, choose Open Release Directory.

  2. Navigate to the location of your device driver.

  3. Type sysgen and press ENTER.

    Wait a few minutes for the Sysgen phase to finish. For more information, see Build Phases and Sysgen Tool.

  4. Type build -c and press ENTER to build your driver.

    For more information about Build tool options, see Build Tool.

If your driver builds with zero errors, you have successfully built your device driver. If errors occur in the build process, you must debug the source code for your driver.
