  • Windows Embedded Standard 7 is based on the Windows 7, but is a component-based operating system (you can select which components are included with the OS).  Traditional Windows desktop applications can be built to run on this operating system with little or no changes, providing the dependencies are available. 

    The Embedded Compact is a different type of OS.  I would try developing a simple application and testing it out.

  • Windows Embedded Compact (aka Windows CE) is a completely different operating system than Windows Embedded Standard 7. WES7 is Windows 7 broken down into selectable components.

    For WES7/Windows 7, just create any project for Windows.
