Microsoft has made available new features for Windows Embedded Standard 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) as well as for Windows Embedded POSReady 7.
Customers running any of the platforms mentioned above need to head over to the ECE site and grab the refreshes offered by the Redmond company. As usual, access to the updates is limited.
The new goodies for the embedded flavor of the Windows 7 client are packed inside the Windows Embedded Standard 7 SP1 September 2011 Feature Update, the software giant revealed.
Following the deployment of the refresh, two fresh features become available, the Keyboard Filter and a new Microsoft Visio 2010 Viewer application template.
“The Windows Embedded Standard 7 SP1 compatible application template and documentation, for use with Microsoft Visio 2010 Viewer. The compatible application template allows creation of a Windows Embedded Standard 7 image that is compatible with Microsoft Visio 2010 Viewer,” a member of the Windows Embedded Standard team stated
“The Keyboard Filter for Windows Embedded Standard 7 allows administrators to configure an embedded device to prevent certain keyboard or combination of keyboard input.”
Similarly, the ECE site also offers two additional September 2011 Optional Updates, one for Embedded POSReady 2009 and the other for Windows Embedded POSReady 7, but only the latter is getting new features.
The update is designed to introduce Enhanced Write Filter Management Tool and File-based Write Filter Management Tool to customers running POSReady 7.
to the software giant, the Enhanced Write Filter Management Tool is designed to provide “an application to monitor and configure the “Enhanced Write Filter (EWF)”.”
The other out–of-band feature, the File-based Write Filter Management Tool comes to offer similar functionality, but for “File-based Write Filter (FBWF).”
