"Guidelines for designing embedded systems with windows embedded" version 2.1 warning. RRS feed

  • Question

  • This document is on myoem and full of errors. Consider yourself warned if you attempt to use it.

    It is labelled as CONFIDENTIAL and I can see why too.

    However, so is Windows 8.1 Industry Pro, sadly two wrongs do not make a right. Impressive QC and where is SP1 to fix all this mess?

    For your entertainment, fire up GPEDIT

    Go to: 

    Local Computer Policy >> Computer Configuration >> Administrative Templates >> Windows Components >> Search.

    Then look at "Don't search the web or display web results in Search."

    This isn't isolated either, there are off by one descriptions elsewhere. Fundamentally, GPEDIT is a creation of an Elder Thing.

    For an added challenge, I just wasted a few hours looking for "Windows Explorer" section as per this document. It's actually "File Explorer." After that, I just shredded my copy to reduce stress levels.
