Tutorial Step 6: Localizing the Run-Time Image for the CEPC (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

In this step, you localize the custom Enterprise Web Pad OS design into German for the locale of Germany and then build the run-time image based on that OS design. In Windows CE, you can localize a run-time image by selecting from several foreign languages.

To build a localized run-time image for the CEPC

  1. From the Platform Builder Platform menu, choose Settings.

  2. In the Configurations drop-down list, verify that CEPC: X86_Debug is selected.

  3. Choose the Locale tab.

  4. From the Default Language box, choose German (Germany) and verify that the Localize the build check box is selected.

  5. Close the Platform Settings dialog box by choosing OK.

  6. From the Build OS menu, verify that the following options are selected:

    • Copy Files to Release Directory After Build
    • Make Run-Time Image After Build
  7. From the Build OS menu, choose Build and Sysgen.

    Selecting this option builds the changed files in your OS design.

    It can take up to 20 minutes to build the run-time image.

    When the build is complete, you see the following message: MYOSDesign - 0 error(s), XX warning(s).

  8. Reboot the CEPC.

  9. On the development workstation, from the Platform Builder Target menu, choose Attach Device.

    When the localized run-time image finishes downloading to the CEPC, the CEPC initializes and displays the OS.

  10. Verify that the icons in the CEPC OS user interface (UI) are labeled in German.

  11. On the development workstation, from the Platform Builder Target menu, choose Detach Device and then choose OK.

    A dialog box appears, asking whether you want to stop debugging now without disabling the target-side kernel debugger component KdStub.

  12. For the purposes of this tutorial, choose Yes.

    Control returns to Platform Builder.

You have successfully created, built, and downloaded a localized run-time image. You can now create and build an application.
