Send Feedback

After you customize and build a run-time image based on your OS design, and boot and debug the OS, you can use Platform Builder to create, configure, and build an SDK for your run-time design.

Developers can use this SDK to create applications based on the run-time design you create.

In this step, you create an SDK for Microsoft eMbedded Visual C++®.

To create and build an SDK

  1. From the Platform menu, choose SDK and then choose New SDK.
  2. When the SDK Wizard appears, choose Next.
  3. In the Product name that appears when .msi file runs box, type MyCEPCOSDesignSDK.
  4. In the Manufacturer name box, type MyCompany and choose Next.
  5. Verify that the eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0 support check box is selected and choose Next.
  6. On the final page, choose Close this wizard and continue configuring your SDK.

    The wizard closes, and the SDK Settings dialog box opens.

  7. In the SDK Settings dialog box, choose the EULA/Readme tab and select the Include End-user license agreement check box.
  8. In the End-user license agreement path box, enter the location and name of an .rtf file you want to use as a sample custom End-User License Agreement (EULA).

    - or -

    Choose Browse, select an .rtf file you want to use as a sample EULA, and then choose Open.

    The custom EULA you choose is displayed in a separate dialog box when the SDK is installed.

  9. Choose the CPU tab.
  10. In the Configurations box, verify that you have selected a Debug configuration for your SDK; if not, choose Edit and select a Debug configuration for your SDK.

    Selecting a Debug configuration might help prevent errors from occurring when you build your SDK.

  11. Apply the settings to your SDK and close the dialog box by choosing OK.
  12. From the Platform menu, choose SDK and then choose Build SDK.

    While the SDK is being built, the SDK Wizard dialog box displays build information.

  13. When the build is complete, choose Done.

    Your SDK is in the MyCEPCOSDesign_sdk.msi file in %_WINCEROOT%\PBWorkspaces\MyOSDesign\SDK.

You have completed this tutorial, created and debugged a custom run-time image and a simple application that runs on a CEPC, and created an SDK for your run-time image.
