On Microsoft Connect you can already download the Customer Technical Preview of Service Pack 1 for Windows Embedded Standard 7.

New features in SP1 are Remote FX which is a set of RDP technologies that allows rich graphics experience directly from the server.
Additional features specifically for Windows Embedded Standard 7 are

  • PMQ Mapping to Out of Box Drivers
    The features allows drivers in the out of box drivers folder of the distribution share to be mapped automatically during the installation. Until now only in-box drivers were mapped by the tool.
  • SKU Compliance Packages
    3 new packages are available which can be used to only include features that are appropriate for the selected SKU. This makes it easier to build an image for a specific Windows Embedded Standard 7 SKU.

The CTP is available in different versions:

  • Toolkit with integrated SP1 Distribution Share to create new installations with SP1 CTP
  • SP1 Update CAB which can be used to deploy the SP1 CTP to existing devices
