I struggle setting up the workspace for building an OS image.
I have successfully installed platform builder (I think). I downloaded the BSP according to my module, but where to put?
I downloaded the workspace, I can open it, but during this process I was ask to remove unsupported BSP versions, but this BSP versions were exactly the BSPs I need.
My guess, I failed to copy the BSP files ino the right place.
I want to build my own image cause I need mobile internet access, I use a SIM7600E module connected by USB and the vendor told me to build an new image including the neccessary drivers. Just installing the drivers without building a new image fails, probably more .dlls missing.
Thanks a lot for helping.
With best regards
Please follow below step by step instructions to do that.
Please install Windows Embedded Compact 2013 and VS2015 or VS2013 to build a custom image using Toradex binary BSP and Workspace. We recommend you to use VS2015.
Download WEC2013 iMX6 BSP from here, extract the contents into the WEC2013 Platform folder(WINCE800). It will be at C:\WINCE800\platform\TORADEXIMX6BIN
Download WEC2013 iMX6 Workspace from here and extract the contents into the WEC2013 platform folder(WINCE800). It will be at C:\WINCE800\OSDesigns\IMX6_Core2013
Run VS2015 or VS2013
File → Open → Project/Solution and select IMX6_Core2013.pbxml file inside C:\WINCE800\OSDesigns\IMX6_Core2013
You would see a prompt “Platform Builder determined that the OS design you are opening contains configurations that reference board support packages that are not currently installed. and prompt me to remove list : ToradexiMX6 ARMV7 debug ToradexiMX6 ARMV7 debug ToradexiMX6 release checked”. Please skip the prompt and press OK.
Goto Solution Explorer Window
Select project and right click and select properties. Select configuration properties and confirm ToradexIMX6BIN Release selected as active and click OK
You can integrate your custom build components now e.g. adding a driver or select and remove components.
Run ''Build → Advanced Build Commands → Sysgen" and please be patient until build completes.After build succeeds, you can find NK.bin in the C:\WINCE800\OSDesigns\IMX6_Core2013\RelDir\TORADEXIMX6BIN_ARMV7_Release
Also, Please refer this community question : https://www.toradex.com/community/questions/3651/wince7-imx6-workspace-has-not-build-menu.html if you any other question.
We are using “Colibri iMX6 DualLite” SOC module along with “Colibri Evaluation Board | V3.2B” with Windows Embedded Compact 2013 running in it.
And we need to build a custom OS img based on our requirements.
What exactly is that “Windows Embedded Compact 2013” - you have mentioned in the first point?
I have downloaded that “Windows Embedded Compact 2013” and when I tried installing it is asking me for the product key to continue the installation?
How to get that product key? Is it a part of the Toradex board that we have purchased?
Thank You for your time.
Windows Embedded Compact 2013 platform builder is licensed product from Microsoft, you could try free evaluation version to build a custom image if you are planning to use a long time then you need to buy a license. Please refer below links
