Upgrade XPe run-time image to WES2009 RRS feed

  • Question

  • As the XPe support has been ended, we want to upgrade our embedded product to WES 2009. The purpose is to just upgrade the run-time image without modifying any applications as far as possible.  The applications are currently running successfully on XPe run-time image.

    Unfortunately we don't have XPe Studio machine available now which was used to generate XPe run-time image. We know of two ways by which we can upgrade XPe run-time to WES 2009,

    1/ Run tap.exe on XPe run-time image and Export .PMQ file. Import that PMQ file in WES 2009 Studio Target Designer. Add all the required components, applications and build WES 2009 run-time image.

    2/ Create clean WES 2009 run-time image and configure everything from scratch.

    Question, Is there any smart way we can upgrade XPe run-time image to WES 2009? Without touching any Softwares/application installed? This way we can just upgrade the underlying run-time image and all the components will continue working as it is on XPe.

    Any help, reference, article is appreciated.

    Thanks,

  • If you have all the build files (Configuration file SLX and components SLD) from XPe, you can re-create the configuration file and re-use the components in WES2009.

    Otherwise, you have to start from scratch. In either case, you will need a WES2009 build system.

  • Thanks Sean Liming for your response.

    Unfortunately we have neither the build files nor the XPe Studio Development machine available which was used to generate XPe run-time image.

    With that I think we don't have any other way except two I listed in my main thread.

    Thanks,
