Development environment and tools for Windows Embedded CE 6.0, Windows Embedded Compact 7 and 2013.
If you are still using Windows 7 or Windows 8 to develop Windows Embedded Compact 2013 solution and hesitate to migrate to Windows 10, check out this entry.
A detailed description of the CEJSON JSON Parser.
In part-4 of this getting started series, we will talk
about the application development environment for Compact 2013 and work through
the steps to develop a console C# application from Visual Studio 2013 IDE and
deploy the application to the target device, EduCake, for testing and debug.
As part of any sizable software development project, the need to
perform repetitive testing and debugging tasks is a common routine. As part of a project to develop custom OS
runtime image for a target device, deploying OS runtime image onto the target
device for testing and debugging is one of the repetitive tasks. Without the tool to download the OS runtime
image to the target device, it’s tedious and time consuming to have to manually
transfer the image onto the device for each test and debug session.
Compact 2013 provides an efficient development environment that enables
you to download OS runtime image, generated from the OS design project,
directly from the Visual Studio IDE to the target device for testing and
debugging. In addition, the Compact 2013
development environment also provide a suite of tools to remotely debug the OS
runtime image as the image execute on the device.
Whether you are working with Linux, Windows or other RTOS, develop
custom OS runtime image for a targeted hardware platform, without help from
efficient development tool, is a daunting, tedious and time consuming task. To help simplify the complexity in developing
custom Compact 2013 OS runtime image, Microsoft provides the Platform Builder
suite of tools, a set of free plug-in for the Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 IDE,
available for download from Microsoft website.
In part-2 of this Compact 2013 getting started series, we will work
through the steps, using the Platform Builder plug-in for Visual Studio 2013,
to develop an OS design project and generate an OS runtime image for a target device.
In part-1 of this Compact 2013 getting started series, let's go over the development environment, required software and connectivity between the development workstation and the target device.
Windows Embedded Compact 2013 (formerly known as Windows CE) is the latest version of a small footprint and Real-time capable embedded OS from Microsoft. In this getting started series, we will talk about the development environment, how to properly setup the tools and go through different aspect of development tasks, including developing custom OS runtime image, connectivity to target device, application development, debugging, remote tools, where to find resources and etc.
Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition supports Compact 2013 OS design and application development.
In this LIVE webinar, Doug Boling will teach both experienced CE folks and those new to Windows Embedded about developing Windows Embedded Compact 2013 based devices using Visual Studio 2012, including choosing OS components and hardware to meet the need of the type of device you want to create.
