I'm new to NetDCU, and I'm new to Windows Embedded development.
I would like to set up a stand-alone virtual device, for my NetDCUA5.
Why? I would start developping without the HW, and I could save the deployment time when I will run and test my application during the development. Among others.
According to Microsoft "Developer Guide" http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj823234.aspx, to Run the application without Platform Builder:
You must have one of the following:
- A device that has the OS image stored in flash memory.
- A stand-alone virtual CEPC that you created or have access to, which includes the OS image on a virtual drive.
I created a virtual hard disk, I added the bootloader and the OS image I downloaded from F&S website download area. I added it to my virtual device hard disk, renamed it NK.bin. Then I created a Virtual Device with Virtual PC, and changed the Virtual Device's settings in order to make it boot on the local disk instead of the network.
Unfortunately, when I started my stand-alone virtual device, it automatically closes displaying the 5 messages "Hit Space to enter configuration menu".
