Demo Program



Build the Demo program.

Run the Demo program.


A sample Microsoft Visual C++ makefile, called makefile, is provided to build the sample program. Use this makefile as a basis for constructing makefiles for your own applications.

Note: Depending on how you installed Visual C++, the INCLUDE, LIB, and PATH environment variables may not be automatically set when you install MSDEV. If they are not set, you will have to set them manually or run the following to set them before building any user programs.

\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat

When you run the demo program, it will generate an alarm, then reset it.

Build the Demo Program

  1. From the CIMPLICITY Configuration cabinet for your project, select Command Prompt from the Tools menu.

This will ensure that your environment variables (in particular %BSM_ROOT% and %SITE_ROOT%) are set correctly.

  1. In the Command Prompt window, issue the following commands:


cd %BSM_ROOT%\api\am_api

where <drive> is the disk where your CIMPLICITY software is installed.

  1. If the environment variables are not set automatically, issue the following command to set them:

\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat

  1. Now build the executable:


Run the Demo Program

The API process name must be stored in the PRCNAM environment variable for the program to run. The name is an arbitrary character string of up to 10 characters. To create PRCNAM, enter the following command in the Command Prompt window:

set PRCNAM=<name>

where <name> is the API process name.

To run the sample program, enter the following command in the Command Prompt window:
