Platform Settings (Windows CE 5.0)
You can use the Platform Settings dialog box to view and modify options for individual Catalog items and for an entire OS design.
With the Platform Settings dialog box, you can view and modify the following information:
- General OS design options
- Build options
- Custom build actions
- Locale options
- Environment variables
- Run-time image settings
Note When you change the settings for a Catalog item and the associated OS design, the changes apply only to the configuration for an OS design selected in the Platform Settings dialog box.
If you build the run-time image using a configuration for an OS design that is different from the one selected, the corresponding setting changes are not incorporated into the build.
The integrated development environment (IDE) sets environment variables when you use it to configure and modify an OS design. You can also set environment variables from the Platform Settings dialog box in addition to these automatically set variables.
If the setting for an environment variable can be changed by selecting an option on the Build Options tab and you try to set it on the Environment tab, Platform Builder notifies you that you can change the variable by selecting or clearing the associated option on the Build Options tab.
If you try to set a Sysgen variable on the Environment tab, Platform Builder notifies you that the variable is associated with a Catalog item and that you can include the item in your OS design by adding it from the Catalog.
Use the Configuration field in the Platform Settings dialog box to select the configuration for an OS design that you want to modify:
- A debug configuration is built with full symbolic debugging information and without optimization.
- A release configuration is optimized for maximum speed and, therefore, is built without full symbolic debugging information.
For more information, see Levels of Debugging Support.
