OS Design Settings (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)

1/6/2010

You can use the OS Design Property Pages dialog box to view and modify options for an OS design and any subprojects that are included.

With the OS Design Property Pages dialog box, you can view and modify the following information for multiple configurations of your OS design:

  • General options
  • Locale options
  • Build options
  • Environment variables
  • Custom build actions
  • Subproject Image settings

    When you change the settings for an OS design, the changes apply only to the configuration selected in the OS Design Property Pages dialog box.

    If you build the run-time image using a configuration for an OS design that is different from the one selected, the corresponding setting changes are not incorporated into the build.

Use the Configuration field in the OS Design Property Pages dialog box to select the configuration for an OS design that you want to modify:

  • A debug configuration is built with full symbolic debugging information and without optimization.
  • A release configuration is optimized for maximum speed and, therefore, is built without full symbolic debugging information.

For more information, see Levels of Debugging Support.

The integrated development environment (IDE) sets environment variables when you use it to configure and modify an OS design. You can also set environment variables from the OS Design Property Pages dialog box in addition to these automatically set variables.

If the setting for an environment variable can be changed by selecting an option on the Build Options pane and you try to set it on the Environment pane, Platform Builder notifies you that you can change the variable by selecting or clearing the associated option on the Build Options pane.

If you try to set a sysgen variable on the Environment pane, Platform Builder notifies you that the variable is associated with a Catalog item and that you can include the item in your OS design by adding it from the Catalog.
