There seem to be two downloads from TI, one is just a set of demo images (bootloader, Xloader, CE Image), and the other contains all all the source. The second one (the one with source) is:
From memory once you install that you will find some zip files somewhere in the tree which you have to unzip and install under WINCE600 (read the txt files for exactly where).
You need to use Visual Studio 2005 (not 2008), but can't use the Express Edition. There is a trial version available from MS.
I have followed Joel's steps with a C3 beagleboard, and I also added all the latest updates. I installed them in the order listed on this page:
(I went all the way and updated to R3, even though Joel's tests hadn't gone that far - seems to work for me).
I then installed the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 Update Rollup:
I didn't install any other QFEs.
One problem that I noticed is that the path that the TI software installs itself to is too long and causes an "Out of Buffer" error when compiling. I changed the name of the root directory under C:\WINCE600\Platforms to something shorted (I used
I also used the Visual Studio build (after opening the .sln file) rather than the batch file methods documented by Joel to build the software - I guess its your choice. Also, I think there was a problem with the "Debug" build being too big
for something (can't remember what exactly now), so I'm building everything as "Release".
I'm still learning myself, but thought these tips might help you get over the line.
