how do I install windows XP Embedded SP3 on windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried twice to install windows XP Embedded with SP3 on to my windows 7 development machine with no luck.
    When the install completes I cant run the target designer or component manager as both complain that the SQL database is missing.

    I've tried following the vista install notes I found elsewhere on the web but this too has failed. does anyone know how you are supposed to
    get an XPe development enviroment set up on windows 7? I can't be the only one who's tried this.

  • Hello, Windows Embedded Standard 2009 Tools are supported on Windows 7. There is a similar post with a solution for Vista which I suspect will be the same resolution for Windows 7. Please take a look and try it out. By the way, this forum is for Windows Embedded Standard 7. I believe you are using Windows Embedded Standard 2009. If the above link does not solve your problem please post to the Windows Embedded Standard 2009 Tools Forum. Best Regards, Tom
