Based on the Windows 8 code base, WE8S builds on the tools released in WES 7 to offer better device servicing and life-cycle management.

Architecture and planning is an important part of the image developing process and critical for the product life cycle. Professional’s Guide to Windows® Embedded 8 Standard covers all the basic tools and features of WES 8 including Image Configuration Editor (ICE), Module Designer, Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM), Unified Write Filter (UWF), and much more. The book brings all the elements together with the steps to create images and architect them into final products. There are 21 exercises that cover the various tools, concepts, and technologies.
