Debug and Remote Tools
WHAT’S IN THIS CHAPTER?
- Debugging Windows Embedded Compact 7 OS design
- Debugging the build process
- Using Compact 7 remote tools
Even with the best engineering team, you are expected to spend a great deal of time and resources to identify elusive problems and look for alternative ways to improve system performance and stability.
Debugging and troubleshooting are integral parts of the development process. A productive debugging environment can help minimize the time and effort you need to spend for debugging, which can have a direct impact to the project’s cost, schedule, and success.
The Platform Builder for Windows Embedded Compact 7 provides efficient tools and facilities to remotely debug an OS run-time image as it runs on the target device. This chapter provides information about the debugging facilities and remote tools available as part of the Compact 7 development environment, and works through multiple exercises showing the steps to use these tools.
