Downloading the Emulator IP Phone Run-time Image on Another Computer (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


To test calling from one instance of the IP Phone run-time image to another, you must download and run the run-time image on two Emulator instances. The Emulator instances must be running on different desktop computers on which Platform Builder is installed.

To copy an existing IP Phone run-time image to another computer, configure the download connection, and download the run-time image

  1. On the computer you used to create the run-time image, navigate to the nk.bin file in %_WINCEROOT%\OSDesigns\<OS design name>\<OS design name>\RelDir\Emulator_ARMV4I_Release.

    You created the workspace name in Creating an IP Phone Run-time Image for an Emulator. The nk.bin file contains the complete run-time image in a format suitable for downloading and running on the Emulator.

  2. Copy the nk.bin file to the second computer, and then start Platform Builder on this second computer.

  3. You do not need to open the nk.bin file in Platform Builder first anymore, as you did in older versions. After you have set up your connectivity configuration (Step 4), then when you Attach Device, Platform Builder will open the Select A Run-Time Image dialog for you to select your runtime image. You will navigate to where you copied the image and select it at this point. .

    Once you have set up your connectivity options and are ready to Attach Device, the Platform Builder instance on the second desktop computer is now ready to download the run-time image — it is in the same state as the instance on the original desktop computer was immediately before you configured the download connection and downloaded the run-time image.

  4. Download the run-time image. For detailed instructions, see Downloading the Emulator IP Phone Run-time Image.

When you finish configuring the download connection and downloading the run-time image on the second computer, you will have two Emulator instances, both running the IP Phone run-time image.

You are now ready to test the phones. For detailed instructions, see Testing the IP Phone.
