Works on Win 7 Pro, Doesnt work on Win Embedded Standard 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have an application we need to install to support operation of our functionality.  We installed the application and tested on Windows 7 Pro.  The application installed fine.  However, on installation under Windows 7 Embedded, then applicaiton exits with an access violation.  I suspect that something is not being loaded int Windows 7 Embedded.  Is there anyway to determine what is needed or what the difference is?  I am just looking for a way to figure out why it installs on the Pro and not the embedded.  I just dont know how to start looking.  Any suggestions?

    Thank You in advance.

    • Is this your company's application or a 3rd party?
    • If 3rd party can you say what the applicaton is? Some applications will check for the OS and fail if they see it is not the desktop OS.
    • when you built the WES7 image, is this a full image, or a small image? If smaller you might have a missing package.

    "Mark/Propose As Answer" if you got one.
