Image Build Process
Windows Embedded Standard 7 offers a new and easy way of creating images. The image is being build directly on the target hardware using Image Build Wizard. This tool offers an easy to use graphical setup wizard, similar to the normal Windows 7 setup, which guides you through the whole image build process.
Alternatively you can use the Image Configuration Editor on a development machine to pre-configure your image and create an answer file. This answer file can be used together with the Image Builder Wizard on the target device to run the setup unattended.
E, P and C version
Windows Embedded Standard is available in different versions.
The license you need depends on which features you are going to use in your image.
This is a summary of features which are available in the different versions.
Note: Windows Embedded Standard 7 Service Pack 1 will introduce new SKU Compliance Feature Packages.
These packages ease the selection of a specific version. For example, when a WES7E SKU Compliance Package has been added only the features which are included in this package will work. All other features such as Windows Media Center will be deactivated.
