LabVIEW PDA hangs during build

 When I try to build a sample ("Hello world" -PDA VI) the build hangs (the progress bar stops about 1/3 of the way across) and LV stops reponding.

My system configuration,

Windows XP -sp 2
LabVIEW 8.0.1
PDA Module
MS Acitve Sync 4.1.0
eMbedded Visual C++ 4.0
.Net Framework SDK 4.0
Pocket PC 2003 SDK
Visual Studio .Net 2003

I am just getting started with programming PDA (WinCE 5.0)

I need to write a testware application for a customers embedded product running WinCE 5.0 on an ARM926EJS (i.MX21) Note this is not a PDA product.  If I can use LabVIEW it would be great, but regardless I want to understand how to build LV PDA applications.

I suspect that I do not have one or more required components installed or configured correctly...your thoughts/comments/help is appreciated

Hi jakecox
The PDA toolkit works like a LabVIEW to C translator with a MS C-Compiler
for ARM processor (CLARM)
If you use FILEMON you can see that LV creates several C files in your tmp
folder. After that the CLARM starts working.  In my case a compile session
takes about 1,5 .. 2h for a 6MB application. That may make you think that the
application is hanging.
Have a look at the taskman to weather CLARM is working or not.
With kind regards
