  • The genius marketing people who have MBA degrees at Microsoft decided to rename XPe to WES2009. When they did that they had two products that did the same thing. The only difference is that WES2009 came on a single DVD rather than multiple CDs. The tools are the same, but they come in two different kits. You cannot tell the resulting images apart easily since they are both XP. What tool set are you using now – XPe or WES2009? If XPe, continue to use XPe.

  • Technically, they are the same product -thanks to Microsoft marketing.

    The license key for XPE cannot be used for WES2009, and the license key for WES2009 cannot be used for XPE.
