Platform Builder: Error: Ram Start Overlaps ROM Binary
In embedded systems, like Windows CE, it is possible to have more bytes in the Operating System (OS) than there is space to store the OS on the device. It is also possible to have more bytes in the OS than you have allocated for saving the OS on the device. The first could be a bigger problem than the second.

Platform Builder: Fmerge Tips and Tricks Fmerge is a file merge utility that runs when you run makeimg. Fmerge is used to concatenate and process bib, reg, dat, db and nls files.
