8 Replies and 1621 Views Unable to create an SDK using PB 5.0  1621  8 Started by  Deleted User I have a LPD pxa270 development kit, and the lpd Windows CE BSP for it. It is working great so far. However, I wanted to make an SDK so that applications could be developed using Visual Studio 2005 perhaps on machines which don't have Platform Builder installed. Following the instructions in the PB help file, I configured the SDK, but when I try to build it I get the following error: "It is recommended that you build a run-time image before building an SDK. Otherwise, the build pr...

However, my own OS build only connects occasionally. Out of 14 tries, it connected twice. The OS image is being loaded from Compact flash, and the command line params start it witho...

Recently we acquired a IMX31 Zoom kit. I have downloaded the BSP files from this site. Upon looking at the readme, I read the following: Quote: It is highly recommended to remove all previous LoCE components before installing this version of the LoCE Base BSP. Does this mean that I have to remove the PXA270 components, so there is no LoCE before installing the new version Lookin...

We are using the Zoom Development Kit for the Intel PXA270 card engine. I created the image following the users manual, only I added the serial driver to enable ActiveSync. We have a custom display hooked up (Sharp LS037V7DW01) which I have successfully configured in LoLo.

1 Replies and 1310 Views lpd_loce_bsp_2_2_0  1310  1 Started by  casner When cleaning up the old device drivers in my PB 5.0 catalog, I noticed a strange thing. Everything in the catalog is version 500, except lpd_loce_bsp_2_2_0, which lists itself as 420. Did someone forget to update the version information that shows in Catalog Manager Or is it really a CE 4.2 BSP being used for CE 5.0 I think it's probably the former.
