Build System Tools (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

Platform Builder contains a variety of command-line tools, which make up the build system, to perform tasks such as creating and building run-time images.

The integrated development environment (IDE) is a thin layer over these tools, so you can use these tools in a command-line prompt build window to work with workspaces.

The following table shows the command-line tools and their functions.

Tool Description
Build Demo tool (Blddemo.bat) Calls all tools necessary to create Microsoft Windows CE–based OS functionality, generate source code, copy files to a release directory, and make a run-time image.
Build Release Directory tool (Buildrel.bat) Copies all modules and files required to build the run-time image to a common release directory.
Build tool (Build.exe) Creates executable files for the target device.
