While computers can take their time booting, users expect embedded devices to turn on instantly.  Every second the user waits is a second that user is questioning the quality of the device.  During this one-hour webcast you’ll learn how to shorten the boot up time of your Windows Embedded Compact system.  Topics we’ll cover include:

· How to measure boot time

· Critical paths in the boot sequence

· How to optimize the componentization

· How to configure the shell for optimal boot performance.  

While this session will center around Windows Embedded Compact, these techniques will also be relevant for Windows Embedded CE 6 devices.  Join us for this example-filled discussion of how to speed up your device!
