How to Create a Run-Time Image (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


Windows Embedded Studio includes all of the tools that are required to build a complete Windows Embedded Standard operating system. By using these tools you can quickly create a run-time image that you can deploy onto a device.

This How-to provides the basic end-to-end process for creating a run-time image. For a step-by-step walkthrough, see Tutorial: Building and Deploying a Run-Time Image.

Creating a run-time image

  1. Use Target Analyzer to create a .pmq file that records your specific hardware.

  2. Create a new configuration or work with an existing configuration.

  3. If necessary, add components to the configuration.

  4. Check and resolve dependencies for all components in the configuration.

  5. Build the run-time image. While developing a run-time image, you may need to check dependencies and build the run-time image several times to debug it.

  6. Deploy the run-time image to the device, and verify that all functionality is working as expected.
