Step 3: Create a New Configuration (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


After creating a devices component, you can start building your run-time image. In Target Designer, you add components to your configuration. A configuration is a collection of components that constitutes a Windows Embedded Standard OS image.

  1. Run Target Designer.

  2. From the File menu, choose New.
    The New Configuration dialog box appears.

  3. Type in a configuration name, for example, MySystem, and choose OK.
    The MySystem.slx configuration appears in the configuration editor.

  4. From the Component Browser, drag the devices component to the configuration editor pane.
    The devices component is added to the configuration.

  5. In the Search box, type Explorer Shell and choose the Search icon.
    The Explorer Shell component, located in the Software\System\User Interface\Shells\ node, is highlighted in the component browser.

  6. Drag the Explorer Shell component to the configuration editor pane. The Explorer shell is added to the configuration.

  7. Using the same technique, add the following components:


    Search starts from your last selected node in the component browser, and searches down from there. Select the top-level node in the component before choosing the Search icon.

    • NTFS (Software\System\System Services\Base node)
    • NT Loader (Software\System\System Services\Base node)
    • NTFS Format (Software\System\Storage & File Systems\Applications node)
    • Language Support to choose a default language component (Software\System\International\Infrastructure node)
    • User Interface Core (Software\System\User Interface\Shells\Windows Shell)

You are now ready to update the configuration settings.
