When you build the boot loader source code, you generate a file called Eboot.exe. Eboot.exe is the name specified in the TARGETNAME macro variable of the sources file created when you create the boot loader sources and makefile files. For more information, see Creating the Boot Loader Sources and Makefile Files.

Note   When building the boot loader, ensure that the build is run from the boot loader directory.

To build the boot loader source code

  1. At the command prompt, enter the following command:
    build -c

    For more information about the build tool and the parameters you can use, see Build Tool.

  2. Verify that %_WINCEROOT\Platform\MyPlatform\Target\ARMV4I\Retail\Eboot.exe was created.

    If the boot loader executable was not created, consult Build.log for more information. Build.log is a log file written by the build subsystem in the boot loader directory.
