Step 5: Check Dependencies (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


After configuring your run-time image, check its dependencies before building.

  1. From the Configuration menu, choose Check Dependencies.
    The dependency check may run for a few minutes or longer, depending on the performance capabilities of your computer.

  2. When the dependency check has completed, choose Close.
    A task is added to the Tasks tab whenever more than one component is available to resolve a dependency.

  3. If there are no tasks, proceed to Step 6: Build the Windows Embedded Standard Run-Time Image.
    - or -
    Double-click a task on the Tasks tab.
    The Resolve Dependency dialog box appears, and describes how many components must be selected to resolve the dependency, and listing the components available to do so.

  4. Select components to resolve this dependency and choose Add.

  5. Resolve all of the dependencies listed on the Tasks tab.


    Resolving dependencies may introduce new dependencies.

  6. Run the dependency check again, resolving any additional tasks.
    Do this until no tasks appear on the Tasks tab.

  7. After resolving all dependencies, close the Dependency Check dialog box.

You now have a complete configuration that is ready to build into a run-time image.
