You can import any existing project you created in the XP Embedded Target Designer into the Windows Embedded Standard Target Designer.

To do this follow these steps:

  • Start Windows Embedded Standard Target Designer
  • Click File / Open
  • Select the XP Embedded Target Designer project
  • After loading is done click Configuration / Upgrade Configuration
  • Click Yes
  • Run Dependency Check

Your image is now upgraded to Windows Embedded Standard.


Update the product key in the image settings – the XP Embedded key will no longer work here!
