Problem with 'Clone Public Code to BSP'
In section 2 of Chapter 3 (Clone Public Code to BSP), when building myvga.dll you appear to assume that a MyOSDesign project has already been created and that a MyVGA.sln exists. Both of these are not the case for someone following your detailed steps from the online version of the book. This is the first mention of MyOSDesign in the book and none of the provided software installs create it either.

When I try to setup my own MyOSDesign project (not sure which device profile to use) and MyVGA.sln to build myvga.dll, I see the following build errors:

------ Build started: Project: MyOSDesign, Configuration: MyCEPCBSP X86 Release Platform Builder (_TGTCPU) ------

What are the missing steps to get this to work?

I am using the latest downloads of Windows CE 6.0 R3 along with the hundreds of patches and latest QFEs required. This is of course in VS2005.

Finally built
I finally got the MyVGA.dll built. I'm not sure exactly what the fix was.

I created a new OSDesign and followed some of the steps from http://download.microsoft.com/downlo..._Reference.zip in order to setup the components and ENVs.

I also ran 'sysgen' instead of 'Build' on MyVGA. This is likely the fix because C:\WINCE600\OSDesigns\MyOSDesign\MyOSDesign\Wince6 00\MyCEPCBSP_x86\cesysgen did not exist.

Either way, this is quite an omission for someone who is reading your book to learn Win CE 6.0 R3. Up until this point the steps were clear, but this set me back 3 days.

OK, just hit same problem. Seems you need to build your project BEFORE building MyVGA. Sysgen didn't help any.
