Target Analyzer Hardware Detection Capabilities (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)

4/23/2012

The Target Analyzer tool provides various levels of hardware detection, depending on the OS running on the device. Tap.exe can be restricted or unrestricted. In a 16-bit OS environment, Ta.exe produces limited results. Ta.exe can only make an assumption regarding hardware abstraction layer (HAL) and CPU types. The following table shows the hardware device types that Tap.exe and Ta.exe can detect.

Ta.exe is a real-mode 16-bit version of Target Analyzer that can be run by using Microsoft MS-DOS. Use Ta.exe only for 16-bit MS-DOS devices.
