Internet Appliance Features

Windows CE .NET

The New Platform Wizard creates an Internet Appliance platform that includes a base set of components for a variety of devices. Once you have created the starting point for your device, you can customize the configuration by adding components from the Platform Builder catalog or by adding customized features, files, or drivers that you develop. For more information about default components for this configuration, see Internet Appliance Configuration.

This configuration provides the basic functionality for non-mobile, browser-based Internet Appliance devices.

When you create an Internet Appliance configuration using the New Platform Wizard, a set of basic features is included in the image by default. Although you can select optional features in the wizard, the required features do not appear as options.

Features can be anchored or unanchored. The following list shows the description of each:

  • Anchored features are either added by using the New Platform Wizard or added manually from the catalog.
  • Unanchored features are either required and are not shown in the wizard but always included in a thin client, or are required to support the anchored features. You cannot remove the unanchored features that are included.

For more information about anchored and unanchored features, see Platform Modification.

In addition to the features that you add to your platform, some features are added during the build cycle due to dependencies being added. The following list shows the location of files that contain a list of Sysgen variables for all features in the image after the build cycle is complete:

  • For a display-based device, see %_WINCEROOT%\Public\<Platform Name>\_iabasefeatures.txt
  • For a headless device, see %_WINCEROOT%\Public\<Platform Name>\_hlbasefeatures.txt
Note   Because one Sysgen variable may be set by another Sysgen variable, not all of the Sysgen variables in these files directly correspond to a feature in the catalog.

If you build from a command line, for information about how to view a list of sysgen variables, see Build Demo Tool.
