Install the Standard 8 Toolkit on a Development Computer (Standard 8)
Learn how to install the Windows Embedded 8 Standard Toolkit (Standard 8 Toolkit) on your development computer.
You install Windows Embedded 8 Standard Toolkit (Standard 8 Toolkit) on a development computer so that you can use tools to deploy and service a Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8) image, and also to develop and build new Standard 8 images. For information about deploying and servicing images, see Deploy Images and Maintain Images. For information about developing and customizing images, see Build Images and Customize Images.
The Standard 8 Toolkit consists of 32-bit applications that you can install on both x86-based and x64-based computers.
The first time you run Image Configuration Editor (ICE), it prompts you to provide your ICE product key. If you do not provide a valid product key, ICE begins a 30-day toolkit trial period and prompts you for a valid product key each time you start ICE. At the end of the toolkit trial period, you must enter a valid product key to continue to use ICE.
