To test calling from one instance of the IP phone run-time image to another, you must download and run the run-time image on two Emulator instances. The Emulator instances must be running on different desktop computers on which Platform Builder is installed.

To copy an existing IP phone run-time image to another computer, configure the download connection, and download the run-time image

  1. On the computer you used to create the run-time image, navigate to the nk.bin file in %_WINCEROOT%\PBWorkspaces\<workspace name>\RelDir\Emulator_x86_Release.

    You created the workspace name in Creating an IP Phone Run-time Image for an Emulator. The nk.bin file contains the complete run-time image in a format suitable for downloading and running on the Emulator.

  2. Copy the nk.bin file to the second computer, and then start Platform Builder on this second computer.
  3. To open the run-time image on the second computer, from the File menu, choose Open, and navigate to the location of the nk.bin file that you copied in Step 2.
  4. In the Files of type box, choose Kernel Files, select nk.bin, and then choose Open.

    The Platform Builder instance on the second computer is now ready to download the run-time image — it is in the same state as the instance on the original computer was immediately before you configured the download connection and downloaded the image.

  5. Download the run-time image. For detailed instructions, see Downloading the Emulator IP Phone Run-time Image.

When you finish configuring the download connection and downloading the run-time image on the second computer, you will have two Emulator instances, both running the IP phone run-time image.

You are now ready to test the phones. For detailed instructions, see Testing the IP Phone.
