Creating a New Project (Windows CE 5.0)

Windows CE 5.0

After you open or create a workspace, you can create any of the following projects and add them to your OS design:

  • Applications
  • Dynamic-link libraries (DLLs)
  • Static libraries
  • Transport layers
  • Sources files
  • Dirs files

To create a project

  1. From the File menu, choose New Project or File.
  2. In the New Project or File dialog box, choose the Projects tab.

    The Projects tab does not appear unless a workspace is open.

  3. From the list, select the type of project you want to create.

    You can customize a project after you create it in your workspace.

  4. In the Project name field, enter a name for your project.
  5. If you want to change the location of your project files, in the Location field, enter a new directory path, or select a directory using the Browse button, and then choose OK.

    By default, the files are located in a subdirectory of your OS design directory.

  6. Choose one of the following options, and then choose OK.
    • If you want to associate your project with a specific workspace, choose the Workspace project radio button.

      By default, this option is selected.

    • If you do not want your project to be associated with a specific workspace, choose the Sources project radio button.
  7. (Optional) To customize the default Readme.txt file with information about your project, enter information in the displayed fields and choose Next.

    You can continue to customize this file after you complete the New Project Wizard.

  8. Select the type of project foundation you want to create and choose Next.
  9. (Optional) Set the advanced build settings for your project.

    You can select the release type for your project and whether to build the project during the pre-Sysgen step of the build process.

    For more information about release types, see RELEASETYPE.

  10. Choose Finish.

    The new project that you created becomes the active project in the workspace.

  11. (Optional) To learn more about the files created by the New Project Wizard, in the Workspace window choose the FileView tab and select the ReadMe.txt file.

    You can also modify the information in this file.
