Creating a run-time image
Use Target Analyzer to create a .pmq file that records your specific hardware.
Create a new configuration or work with an existing configuration.
If necessary, add components to the configuration.
Check and resolve dependencies for all components in the configuration.
Build the run-time image. While developing a run-time image, you may need to check dependencies and build the run-time image several times to debug it.
Deploy the run-time image to the device, and verify that all functionality is working as expected.
