    Rawdeps, Cooking, Oh My!

    • 6 Comments
    Here’s a real question from the 'windowsxp.embedded' newsgroup : “I have noticed in TD that some components have resources called "RAWDEP (819)"... How do I create such resources in Component Designer?” OK, here’s the scoop. “RAWDEP” resources are used internally by Microsoft as part of the Embedded build process for every build every day, those rawdeps on files are converted to component...
