Hello,

I was able to successfully use Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 and Platform Builder to build Fresscale i_MX53 SMD ARMV7 Release version of the iMX53_SMD_Mobility project.  I can take the eboot.nb0 and NK.nb0, program SD/microSD and boot the the OS image.

Now, when I select START (Windows logo) | Programs | Command Prompt I can see that WEC7 attempts to open this application, but if fails to start and I can't see the graphical part of this.  When I use terminal program to look at the debug output I can see the following (after launching a few times):

PID:0775003E TID:0776003E  PID:0775003E TID:0776003E Pocket CMD v 7.00

PID:0775003E TID:0776003E \PID:0775003E TID:0776003E >PID:0775003E TID:0776003E  PID:0606004A TID:07E40046  PID:0606004A TID:07E40046 Pocket CMD v 7.00

PID:00ED02BA TID:07F40096 \PID:00ED02BA TID:07F40096 >PID:00ED02BA TID:07F40096

Why is it that with the example project iMX53_SMD_Mobility provided by Freescale does not allow the Command Prompt to work?  Is this a memory limitation of some sort?  Is there anyway I can get additional information?

The main reason for this not working is because the "Console Window" was not enabled in the Catalog items.

In Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Open iMX53_SMD_Mobility Solution.  Then click on "Catalog Items View" and traverse "iMX53_SMD_Mobility" -> Core OS -> Windows Embedded Compact -> Shell and User Interface -> Shell -> Command Shell -> Place a check next to "Console Window".

Once the "Console Window" is checked, rebuild the OS and reprogram the SD/microSD card with the bootloader and OS images.  Boot from the SD/microSD card and launch the command prompt again.  You will now see it.

Issue resolved.
