Another XPE Blog

First, a little bit about myself: I joined Microsoft and XP Embedded team about 8 months back. Before coming to Microsoft, I did my Masters in Computer Engineering at University of Southern California and I also worked there as a Systems Analyst for about a year and a half. Even though, I have been in XP Embedded team for a short time, I have worked on several bits and pieces of XPE SP2 and I wanted to share some useful information that I have learned. So, here I am, blogging for the first time, in the hope that someone out there will find this useful.

I will use this blog primarily to talk about common XP Embedded issues raised in newsgroups and also to share news on embedded features and cool devices. I am planning to post articles on how to configure some features offline (Windows Firewall, Dr. Watson, Pop-UP blocking etc.) and tweaking registry settings. Also, whenever possible, I am planning to post some scripts and tools that I am working on. I have written scripts to backup, restore and remove XPE database which can be useful as a starting point for anyone who wants to write his/her own custom database scripts. I have also written tools to diff SLDs and SLXs.

Stay Tuned......
