Windows Embedded Standard 7 allows you to add and remove features on your existing image.
This can be done very easily by using the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool. The tool allows you to either online or offline edit your image. The online option enables you to add or remove features while the image is running. The offline version lets you add or remove features from an image which is currently not booted.
The basic command line to add feature packages to your image looks like this:
The video shows the capturing of an installed “ready-to-clone” image where it will be saved to an external harddrive.
The second part will show the deployment to a fresh system where the target disk still needs to be prepared.
No, you do not need to enter a separate license for each cloned image.
The licensing of Windows Embedded works different than for normal Windows versions.
A image is fully licensed if you put a license sticker onto the device.
