Enabling Support for File Types in an OS Design (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)

1/5/2010

This topic provides information about how to enable support for specific file types in an operating system (OS) design, so that you can copy a specific type of file to a target device and then execute that file on the device operating system.

The following table shows file types and Sysgen variables that are required in an OS design to support those file types:

File type Sysgen variable requirements

.txt files

SYSGEN_PWORD

.htm files

SYSGEN_IE or SYSGEN_IESAMPLE

.xml files

SYSGEN_MSXML_MINI,

SYSGEN_MSXML_DOM

.gif files

SYSGEN_IMAGING,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_GIF_ENCODE,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_GIF_DECODE

.ico files

SYSGEN_IMAGING,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_ICO_DECODE

.bmp files

SYSGEN_IMAGING,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_BMP_ENCODE,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_BMP_DECODE

.jpg, .jpeg files

SYSGEN_IMAGING,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_JPG_ENCODE,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_JPG_DECODE

.png files

SYSGEN_IMAGING,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_PNG_ENCODE,

SYSGEN_IMAGING_PNG_DECODE

.mp3 files

SYSGEN_DSHOW_MP3

.wav files

SYSGEN_DSHOW_WAV

.wma files

SYSGEN_DSHOW_WMA or SYSGEN_DSHOW_WMA_VOICE

To add support for a specific file type
  1. In Platform Builder, choose Catalog Items View.

  2. In the Catalog Item Search box, type the Sysgen variable, and then choose the green Search button.

    Catalog Item Search automatically browses to the associated Catalog item.

  3. Check the box associated with the highlighted Catalog item.

The next time that you build the OS design into a run-time image, the selected Catalog item will be included in your run-time image.
