Install Windows Embedded Compact 2103 monthly updates. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having problems updating my Windows Embedded Compact 2013.

    The installer ask me for a location of WindowsEmbeddedCompact2013_SharedSource_w1.msi even though I do not have "shared sources" installed on my computer.  The updater only gives me an option to point to the location of the msi file or to cancel the installation.  There is no option to skip and continue without this file.  How can I install the updates?

  • The Wave 1 shared source is only included in the February 2015 update iso and cannot be downloaded as a part of the normal monthly update process. That is why you must download the newer version of the iso.

    Double check that the iso you have is in fact the February 2015 update iso and not the original iso you used to install WEC2013 before the February 2015 update was released. The correct iso is named en_windows_embedded_compact_2013_february_2015_x86_x64_dvd_6579517.iso on MSDN.

    If you have this iso then the shared source msi is at W1\OS\sharedsource

  • You have to get it from MSDN

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/subscriptions/downloads/#FileId=53027

    or if you don't have an MSDN subscription get it from MyOEM

  • My problem is that when I am trying to apply latest monthly updates to my installation and get the above problem.

    Your are pointing me to an ISO file that I already have installed on my computer, even in a newer version.  How will that help me?
