There was a small bug within the latest version that prevented the tool from exporting any driver. Please download the new fixed version.
I have created a new version of my tool Driver Extractor which is now capable of creating Modules for Windows Embedded Standard 8 CTP1. The tool allows you to extract already installed drivers from your system with just a few clicks.
The Windows Embedded Standard 2009 May 2011 Feature Update adds two additional applications “Enahnced Write Filter Management Tool” and “File Based Write Filter Management Tool” which allow you to monitor the status and configure the filter drivers in you images. The applications will start on the system start and appear in the systray also showing notifications when the overlays runs full. However the tools can be configured to deactivate the automatic startup too.
The new Windows Embedded Device Manager 2011 enables you to manage all your embedded devices with a single tool.
This new tool integrates into Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 and it not only allows you to deploy and update images – you can differentiate between device types. This way updates can be deployed, e.g. only to Thin Clients but not to kiosks however both device types run Windows Embedded Standard 7.
Microsoft has created an interface for the Windows Management Instrumentation for the Enhanced Write Filter and File Based Write Filter. This feature is available for Windows Embedded Standard 2009 and Windows XP Embedded SP3. With it you can control the state and poll settings and other values through WMI. Also the goal of this is to have full control over the filters with the Windows Scripting Host.
The new features are contained in the March 2011 Update and can be found here:
The Driver Injector tool allows you to find suitable drivers for your target device automatically. The tool can be a great help if you have previously extracted all driver with Driver Extractor and want to inject them again automatically. Or if you have a driver CD/DVD and want to inject all drivers automatically to the image without having to install every device manually.
