Multi Core Support in Visual Studio 2008 / 2005

Windows Embedded Compact 7 support multi core systems. To use multiple cores in your application, you need to build it for Windows CE 7. If you use the Windows CE 7 SDK, the linker should be automatically configured for multi-core support. If not, you will need to configure the following settings:

  • Go to "Project -> Properties"
  • Choose "Configuration Properties -> Linker -> Commandline"
  • If there is already a "/Subsystem" parameter, delete it
  • Add the following string: /subsystem:windowsce,7.00

Now, your application should be able to make use of both cores. You can easily verify this with our Colibri Monitor.
