Hello,

During building emulator image with Crossbow AK(BSP 'deviceemulator')
The problem is:
1. I cannot build PPC emulator with default config.bib & memory.cfg.xml because PPC emulator image exceeds the default NK size(around 32MB).
2. I modified above 2 files to accommodate bigger emulator image. And it worked.
3. But I cannot download bigger emulator image with visual studio 2005.
4. I can download only default size of emulator image(32MB)

Can I download PPC image exceeding 32MB How

Thanks a lot in advance,

Are you using Device Emulator v2 Device Emulator v2 supports loading flash images greater than 32 MB.

-Thanks,

Thanks a lot, Mohit.

But, I'm using emulator v2 with build number 8.0.60801.00.

Downloading Wince6.0 image onto the emulator always works fine even exceeding 32MB(I tried around 60MB).

Just PPC image couldn't be downloaded if bigger than 32MB.

Can you please open the console window ('/c' option in DE) and post the output Also i believe you are making use of '/memsize' option in device emulator to increase device emulator memory to minimum 128 M.

-Thanks,

Hello Mohit,

Weird thing, I found. With your hint, I tried to launch emulator image on device emulator program directly. It has worked even with 50MB image.

But still I cannot download same image using VS2005.

When I try "target>attach device" with VS2005, two windows starts - One is a emulator window on which image will launch, and the other is a downloading dialog. No downloading progress happens with 32MB+ image and after few seconds, that dialog disappears.

Can you explain what the difference is between downloading with VS2005 and with device emulator program(deviceemulator.exe)

Thanks a lot,

I am sorry but i got confused.

You told that you are trying to connect using VS2005 (for app development by installing SDK). But you are doing Target->Attach Device (You will be having WinCE6.0 plugin installed and hence i think this menu is there). My understanding is that for app development you should be doing Tools->Connect To Device rather than Target->Attach Device.

Please post the console window out which may help to figure out the cause of the issue.

You can enable console window by going to Tools->Options->Device Tools->Devices->Properties->Emulator options->Peripherals->"Enable Serial ...."

-Thanks,

Mohit

Mohit,

Thank you very much for the reply and help.

From your posting, I got a hint what had made me confused a lot.

Exactly as you said, I was using wince6.0 plug-in to connect to wm6.0 emulator image.

I cloned one emulator environment using 'tools->options->device tools->devices->Save As" from wm5.0 PPC emulator environment.

And changed os image name and some settings. And tried to connect via 'tools->connect to device' and it worked even with 50+MB image.

Thanks a lot again,

Best regards,
