Here is an interesting makeimg error:
                makeimg: FATAL ERROR: Out of buffer space.
Seems that if the folder path for the _FLATRELEASEDIR is too long, makeimg fails with this cryptic error. I to reproduce this error I changed my release folder from:
C:\WINCE500\PBWorkspaces\xxxxxxxxxx\RelDir \xxxxxxxx_ARMV4I_Release
To
C:\WINCE500\PBWorkspaces\xxxxxxxxxx\RelDir\FolderWithLongNameToTryToCauseAnError\FolderWithLongName12345678901234\xxxxxxxx_ARMV4I_Release
And it failed. Notice the two folders named FolderWithLongNameToTryToCauseAnError, with just the first one inserted makeimg ran okay. So at 138 characters it does fails. But if I removed one character, makeimg was okay.
For more on the Platform Builder build system take a look at: Summary of Building Windows CE which lists the articles that I have written about building Windows CE using Platform Builder.
