Adding the Device Update Agent Component to Your Run-Time Image (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)
To enable remote updates to your run-time image, add the Device Update Agent component to your run-time image. Device Update Agent runs as a service on your device. It polls a specified location for updates. The poll location can be a Web server or local hard disk.
To add the Device Update Agent component to your run-time image
In Target Designer, add the Device Update Agent (DUA) component to your configuration. In the component browser, right-Click the Device Update Agent component and choose Add.
To facilitate testing and managing DUA on a device, add the following components to your run-time image:
- Event Log - The Event Log component allows you to view the processes and services running on a system.
- Registry Editor - The Registry Editor component allows you to change any of the DUA registry values on a deployed run-time image.
After you have successfully configured DUA, you should consider removing the Event Log and Registry Editor components from your run-time image. Leaving these components in your run-time image can be a potential security risk.
After adding the required components, check dependencies for your run-time image. Choose Check Dependencies from the Configuration menu.
You can configure the Device Update Agent settings in Target Designer to poll a local media device or a remote Web server.
