Where to get latest updates for Windows Embedded Compact 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the past I frequently checked for updates from the following location:

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42027

    I wonder that the latest update is form December 2016 and January is still missing. Is there another place available to check for updates.

    Kind regards,

    Bernd K.

  • Hi Bernd,

    I checked with the SE Team and can confirm there was no January 2017 drop so December 2016 is the latest.  It is my understanding that the February drop is still in testing but should eventually be available on the downloads site so you should not need MyOEM access to download (although I agree with Michel that it is nice to have).

    Sincerely,

  • I found the best place is MyOEM. Ask your MS rep for access.

  • Microsoft is in the process of moving the embedded updates to the Microsoft update catalog here: http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/home.aspx    However I do not see Compact 2013 out there yet so that means using the SOC or Software Order Center to download the latest update rollups. You can see my video on how to use the SOC here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFD5rLPL7Hg    The SOC is part of MyOEM as a few others have stated so you must have access to MyOEM.  You can reach my team at Arrow via msembedded@arrow.com if further help is needed.
