Windows® Embedded Standard 7 (WES 7) is the successor operating system to the popular desktop-to-embedded series Windows® XP Embedded and Windows® NT Embedded. Based on the Windows 7 code base, WES 7 has a completely new build and development process that reduces the development time and allows for better device servicing and upgrading.
Building an embedded image is not something that should be left to the IT department or the computer repair technician. 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 Standard 7 covers all the basic tools and features of WES 7 including Image Configuration Editor (ICE), Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM), Enhanced Write Filter (EWF), File Based Write Filter (FBWF), distribution share, sysprep, and much more. The book brings all the elements together with the steps to create images and architect them into final products. This second edition adds new topics, such as, service pack 1 additions, SecureBus™, Keyboard Filter, and updates using Configuration Sets. There are 23 exercises and 2 walkthrough exercises that cover the various tools, concepts, and technologies.
