Introduction to Call Profiler (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


Call Profiler allows you to profile both OS and application code. If the code is part of an application, you must then run the application on the target device.

To use Call Profiler, you must do the following:

  • Compile code that contains profiling hooks.
  • Download the compiled code to a target device.
  • Connect Call Profiler to the target device.

You can instrument your code for profiling by using the compiler that ships with your product.

If your application is a Platform Builder project, the executable file for your application is placed in the release directory when you build it.

When you connect Call Profiler to the target device, your application downloads automatically.

For applications created with a tool other than eMbedded Visual C++ or Platform Builder, use File Viewer to copy the files to your target device.

As an alternative, if you use Platform Builder, you can also copy the files manually to your release directory. For more information about copying files manually to your release directory, see Downloading and Launching an Instrumented Module.

Before you run your application on the target device, you must attach the device, and then connect Call Profiler to your target device. To run your application on the target device, run the application in the Call Profiler window.
