FBA Commands (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)

4/23/2012

By using Component Designer or Target Designer, you can specify commands that must run during the First Boot Agent (FBA) portion of run-time image deployment. These commands are also referred to as custom resources.

The following table shows the eight FBA commands.

Command Description

Generic Command

Executes a generic command during FBA processing. You can call entry points in a DLL, execute a script, or call an application. The Generic Command allows you to specify the exact phase at which to run, and can be called before or after a component.

DLL/COM Registration

Registers DLLs and COM objects.

OC Manager Request

OC Manager is the Optional Component Manager. This allows the integration of external components into the setup process. This command is reserved for Microsoft.

RunOnce Request

Executes a file during FBA or after you log on. You cannot specify a phase number as you can with a Generic Command. For more information, see RunOnce Request Types and Scenarios.

Service Data

PnP Device ID

Adds a PnP device driver ID to the run-time image registry.

Component Branch

Specifies which component will replace a specified end-of-life component. Directs Target Designer to use the new component when it builds a configuration.

Shortcut
