Workspaces (Windows CE 5.0)
When you create an OS design, you also create a workspace. A workspace can contain multiple projects, but only one OS design.
A workspace contains the following elements:
- Each workspace includes a .pbxml file, which tracks all information about the OS design. This file stores information about the workspace, such as a list of the OS design or projects. Use Open Workspace to open this file.
- A project file, which tracks all information necessary to create a user-defined Catalog item. A project has a .pbpxml extension.
- An OS design, which is a selection of Catalog items that defines the characteristics of the OS design. You build an OS design to create a run-time image that you can download onto a target device.
After you create a workspace, you can add projects and configurations to an existing project or OS design.
You can create a workspace in the following ways:
By using the New Platform Wizard.
By copying a workspace from another development workstation.
If the workspace you copy from another development workstation contains an OS design based on microprocessors that are not installed on the current workstation, the corresponding configurations are dimmed in the Select Active Configuration list on the Build toolbar.
By copying a workspace from the current development workstation.
To copy a workspace to a new workspace directory on the current development workstation, copy the entire workspace directory and subdirectories and then modify corresponding directory paths in the .pbpxml file.
If you open a workspace that contains an OS design based on microprocessors that you have uninstalled, the corresponding configurations are dimmed in the Select Active Configuration list on the Build toolbar.
