Using VS

can do port to x86 of PC in WinXP simulation ?  very user use VISUAL STUDIO as IDE because is nice for code editing and compiling after it run in target i know can not run as RTOS in NT OS but have you port Freertos to VS for compiling and simulation running only ?

As far as I know VS cannot be used to generate real mode code (unless maybe you have a really old version).  Open Watcom provides a free and easy way to compile and debug the code but I have only tried in on Win2K not WinXP.

i agree you

but we really not need Run in xp !

1.if can not run only compiling the help we to continius use VS 2005 as editor and universal c error cheak!

2. very better if define stack in ram and virtually do stack swiching to not realtime simualtion !

if (2) can not. only (1) help me !

Not sure what you are suggesting with (1) and (2)?

Are you saying that Open Watcom does not work in Windoze XP?  I would be surprised if this were the case.

first (high priority) : compile in vs2005 …
(you can download it in m$ site)

two: very better(lower important) if can (2)

More clearly I say:

Can we have a port of FreeRTOS to Visual C++ 2005? (for simulation purposes).

I use VS2005 as editor and test some part of my microcontroller softwares using its good editor and compiler and debugger!

If I have a port for VC++ 2005 then I can test my programs in it.

We can compile programs in VC++ 2005 using GCC C compiler.(we have two compiler for test ,VC++ for some part of my micro projects,GCC for all projects)

Many part of your micro code is in C/C++,and there is not micro dependent parts in it,you can also simulate that parts in VC++.

It also useful for Barry for faster developement of FreeRTOS (new versions with new features)
