In the past few monts I setup a Production Programming environment for VF61 inspired by this KB.
I use a
ProductionProgramming.bat file which calls
updatetool.exe (stored on the SD card) to update CE6 image, registry, filesystem and splashscreen (in this specific order).
This approach works perfectly for two different projects already in production.
Now I have a third project on the same hardware platform and the production programming can’t be completed because the stage updating the splashscreen never finishes.
If I remove from the batch file the “update splashscreen” step, everything works fine.
The splashscreen is different for the two used in the other projects and so I’m quite sure the issue is in the splashscreen itself.
The strange thing is that if I try to set the same splashscreen launching UpdateTool from CE6 environment, I can change it.
So I’m not sure if the issue is either in the splashscreen file or in something else during production programming (maybe some delay is necessary between two steps?).
How can I debug UpdateTool during production programming?
Does it return something if it fails?
I use some echo messages and it seems that it never returns while updating the splashscren (because the next echo is not printed to the console). But maybe some other failure happens and the whole batch file is aborted (I don’t know).
