To create a custom OS design for the Emulator

  1. On the development workstation, launch Platform Builder.
  2. From the File menu, choose New Platform, and when the New Platform Wizard appears, choose Next.
  3. In the Name box, enter MyOSDesign as the name for your OS design.
  4. In the Path box, accept the default location, which is %_WINCEROOT%\PBWorkspaces\MyOSDesign, and then choose Next.
  5. From the list of available board support packages (BSPs) installed on your development workstation, select EMULATOR: X86 and choose Next.
  6. From the list of available OS design templates, select Enterprise Web Pad and choose Next.
  7. Accept the default selections for Applications & Media by choosing Next.
  8. Accept the default selections for Networking & Communications by choosing Next.
  9. Read the security warnings and then choose Next.
  10. Save your settings and close the New Platform Wizard by choosing Finish.

    Platform Builder creates two default configurations for your OS design:

    • A Debug configuration
    • A Release configuration

After these files are created, you can build a custom run-time image based on your OS design.
