How to deploy the .NET Framework 3.0 on Windows XP Embedded

I ran across a question on the .NET Framework setup forum today about installing the .NET Framework 3.0 on a Windows XP Embedded runtime image.  Fortunately, Andy alerted me to a post on the Windows Embedded team blog that describes the following:

  • How to configure an XPe runtime so that the .NET Framework 3.0 will be able to install on it (what dependencies are needed, how to deploy the runtime image)
  • How to deploy the .NET Framework 3.0 on XPe
  • How to deploy .NET Framework 3.0 language packs on XPe
  • How to deploy .NET Framework 3.0 applications on XPe

If you are a Windows Embedded developer and plan to develop .NET Framework 3.0 applications for you Windows XP Embedded runtimes, I encourage you to take a look at this blog post.
