Debugging (Compact 7)


Windows Embedded Compact 7 is equipped with several tools that you can use to thoroughly debug and test your Windows Embedded Compact powered device. This section contains developer guides for the kernel debugger and for post-mortem debugging. To read about other debugging tools, see the Debugging and Diagnostics reference documentation.

Kernel Debugger

Use this full-featured debugger to view information about your code, set breakpoints, step through code, control debug output messages, and perform just-in-time (JIT) debugging for both the run-time OS image and applications.

Post-Mortem Debugging

Debug a device after it crashes by analyzing a dump file that the Windows Embedded Compact Error Reporting feature generates when there is a second-chance exception or when a particular event occurs.
