  • Hello all!

    New to Windows 7 embedded, have a couple of questions.  I'm looking at cost.  I have a product that will deploy 5 to 100 or computers per sale.  I was looking at purchasing OEM's, but how much can I really save if I use the embedded version.  What is a rough price for the Windows embedded 7 software, then there is a cost for each station, correct?

     

    So my plan is to build an image with embedded, customize it with the software I need, then creat an image of that, then deploy the image.  Am I on the right track?

     

    Thanks!

  • Pricing is something a distributor can answer.

    You are correct on your second question. The W7E tools allow you to create a custom installation soluton that you can install on a target system. Then you can make that target system the master and clone it for production.

  • Thanks Sean!

     

    I did talk to a distributor on this. $995 for the software, and about $89 for each runtime license.  I'm not using a big footprint so it's a little cheaper.

     

    I'm still not sure if this is the way to go, but I'm leaning this way. 

     

    Thanks!
