Create the Executable Image

Creation of an executable customized communication enabler is specific to the operating system on which the executable is built and executed.
To build and link a customized communication enabler for your CIMPLICITY system, you must install the Device Communications Toolkit API and the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler.
The build procedure for the Device Communications Toolkit produces two files:
  • The executable file (<name>.exe)
  • A dynamically linked library file (<name>.dll)
Note: Depending on how you installed Visual C++, the INCLUDE, LIB and PATH environment variables may not be automatically set when you install MSDEV. If they are not set automatically, you will have to set them manually or run the following to set them before building any user programs.
 for /F "tokens=* USEBACKQ" %F in (`"%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio\Installer\vswhere.exe" -property installationPath`) do set VSPATH=%F call "%VSPATH%\Common7\Tools\VsDevCmd.bat"
