In this step, you localize the custom Enterprise Web Pad OS design into German for the locale of Germany. Windows CE offers the ability to localize a run-time image into several languages.

To localize the OS design for the Emulator

  1. From the Platform Builder Platform menu, choose Settings.
  2. In the Configuration drop-down list, select EMULATOR: x86_Release.
  3. Choose the Locale tab.
  4. From the Default Language list, select German (Germany); then verify that the Localize the build check box is selected.
  5. Close the Platform Settings dialog box by choosing OK.
  6. From the Build OS menu, verify that the following are selected:
    • Copy Files to Release Directory After Build
    • Make Run-Time Image After Build
  7. From the Build OS menu, choose Build and Sysgen.

    The build that you have configured and selected results in a build of the changed files in your OS design. It can take up to 20 minutes to rebuild the run-time image.

    When the build process is complete, you see the following message: MyOSDesign - 0 error(s), XX warning(s).

  8. From the Target menu, choose Attach Device.

    In approximately one minute, the localized run-time image finishes downloading to the Emulator.

  9. In the MyOSDesign - Emulator for Windows CE window, verify that the icons in the displayed OS are labeled in German.
  10. From the Platform Builder Target menu, choose Detach Device and then choose OK.
  11. In the window for the Emulator, from the Emulator menu, choose Shut Down.

You have created, built, and downloaded a localized run-time image.

You can now create and build an application based on your run-time image.
