Windows Embedded Compact 7 update fails to download payloads RRS feed

  • Question

  • Any and all of the monthly updates fail to download required msi files.  I updated a couple of systems two weeks ago (2nd half of January 2013) without problem.

    Update installer dialog says:

    The package ‘Platform Builder’ encountered the following error.
    The file was not found. Would you like to continue the installation?

    What's going on?

    Install log has :

  • Same problem here... have been down for a few days now. Trying to work on my degree project but it's rather difficult when I can't download the updates.

  • Thanks for posting.  I'm a bit relieved to know that the problem doesn't seem to be on my side.  My project progress is messed up as well because of this problem - hard to accept that Microsoft has left developers stranded like this.

    Wednesday, February 6, 2013 6:22 PM
  • Im stranded too guys. I cant beleive they would do this either as they just posted a new installer two days ago.
    Wednesday, February 6, 2013 6:53 PM
  • Also getting the same problem - anyone from MS listening?
    Thursday, February 7, 2013 2:12 PM
  • Have we all missed a major announcement from MS regarding a new update scheme?  How could this be happening ?

    You wouldn't experience something like this with Wind River, QNX, etc.

  • I tried calling the embedded department and was on hold to no end.
    Thursday, February 7, 2013 9:24 PM
  • Compact 7 setup team is working on resolving this issue. Thanks for your patience.

  • It seems like files are getting available again, but i still cant do an install since a file is missing.

  • To Compact 7 Setup Team,

    Could you PLEASE make available a downloadable .iso image of "offline layout" of updates 1 through 18 (through 2012-12).

    All these separate monthly downloads that take many HOURS are really non-sense.

    Saturday, February 9, 2013 7:21 PM
  • I totally agree. I cant believe this isn't fixed yet!
    Saturday, February 9, 2013 7:23 PM
  • I disabled the documentation and CETK on install. The it runs till 'Architecture Common Update 15' (Common_upd15.msp).

    How is it possible for such a huge company that they can't solve this problem, it's almost a week now! Are they actively discouraging to use WEC7 or what? Maybe I'll have look at the possibility to switch to Android while waiting for this problem to be solved.

    Monday, February 11, 2013 8:35 AM
  • Same Problem here: Failed to Update English (en-us) Documentation Update 4

    "Update16\Documentation\WindowsEmbeddedCompact7Documentation6_en.msi"

    Someone has a working offline layout of all the updates?

  • After weeks of discurgement I ask you, if I can't even get past the install, what awaits me down the road with this product?

    My install is looking for WindowsEmbeddedCompact7Documentation6 but it says it's trying to aquire update 4. Clearly this install is messed up an I'm wondering why they seem to be discuraging new comers to the product offerings? Linux is still an option for my projects.

    If Linux is still an option for your projects I would recommend to go for it. We are using Windows-CE since V4.2 and for us it will take quite a lot effort to port everything to Linux. This is the only reason we did not move away from MS yet since we are constantly disappointed by the quality of Windows-CE and MS itself. This install issue again shows that MS does not put very much effort in the Windows-CE product. How else can you explain that the product can be offline for more than a week?
    I'm getting more angry every day now since I'm wasting valuable time now waiting for MS to finally do something. If you guys can't fix it, put an iso image online for download or something. Please MS, do something about it and do it NOW!

  • If you're an ECE member, you can download the update from there.
    Monday, February 11, 2013 10:34 PM
  • Thanks for the tip on the ECE member.  I requested a membership by email; let see how long it takes for a helpful answer.

    I shouldn't have to chase down some obscure group membership in order to get my tool set up.  I'm too busy scouring the net and filtering out outdated/bad information !

    I'm seldom sure about anything in life, but I'm fairly certain which RTOS platform I don't want to use next time.

  • I've also been experiencing the same problem for several days now. Some files were downloaded but error was encountered when downloading the documentation. Hours of downloading all for nothing.

  • I also have did not working WEDU,
     wizard wrote the following:

    "Windows Embedded Developer Update is finished. There are no new updates at this time"        

    but the updates are installed only until June.

    WEDU  work fine  until June- he downloaded and installed all automatically - and then suddenly broke

    Who know how to fix it?

    What want WEDU from me.

  • I contacted MS and got the following response:

    "Thanks for letting me know.  The dev team has been working on this and expect it to be resolved soon.  (By Monday I believe)"

    They seem to have another idea of the word "Soon" then I have.
    In the mean while I downloaded and installed an .iso using our MSDN subscription, but that is rather old (update 3). Update from there does not work either because of the same problem.

    With the offline installers you can install WEC 7 and RDP RemoteFX Update

    Thanks for your update! Microsoft seems to have uploaded a new installer and it works after almost 2 weeks.

    Thursday, February 14, 2013 12:35 PM
  • Thanks Microsoft, for responding to this problem.

    Ok, we have gotten past the down load and now:

    An error has occured preventing windows compact 7 from completing

    This is the trial version and file sharing is blocked with the red circled x. Does that matter? 

    What do I do now to finish the install?

    Someone from Microsoft, would you tell us the right recipe for getting this to work?

  • Is anyone installing updates successfully ?  If yes, which monthly update ?

    Should I do a complete UN-install first ?  Where in registry do I look to make sure there are no undesirable remnants (after uninstall)?

    I can confirm that it is still broken.

  • IT'S WORKING NOW!!!

    It's a bit tricky buy it's the way to go if you want to reach the latest update (2012 december) without errors. First two times my update stopped at WindowsEmbeddedSilverlightTools update 7 so I figured out that I need to update it separately first.

    So the steps I did from start:

    1. Install Windows Embedded Compact 7 with DVD 1 and SKIP the update at the start of the installer.

    2. Install Windows Embedded Silverlight Tools update from the Windows Embedded Compact 7 RDP RemoteFX Update DVD.

    3. Install Windows Embedded Compact 7 RDP RemoteFX Update (same DVD as step 2)

    4. Install Windows Embedded Compact 7 Update 3 from another DVD

    5. Go to "Program And Feature" and find Windows Embedded Silverlight Tools and update it to version 7 (I think, you don't have any choice between versions anyway).

    6. Go to "Program And Feature" and update Windows Embedded Compact 7 (Takes looooong time even for my 100Mbps connection).

    The DVDs I have are from Msdn Academy, I don't know if you guys can take other steps to accomplish the install and update but I think the main problem here is caused by the Windows Embedded Silverlight Tools.

  • Compact 7 setup team,

    If the recipe worked out by hrr2 is the best solution to getting recent updates (Nov/Dec 2012) installed, then it is not acceptable.

    Please fix this mess.

  • I don't have the DVD's, I'm downloading.

    I'm thinking the download might be different, especially if the're working on it, while letting us do the testing.

    Can anyone verify if they are different?
