Application and Device Driver Components
Custom application and device driver components provide a convenient way to organize, customize, and install applications and device drivers on your run-time image. By creating a component, you can specify exactly which resources to install. Furthermore, you can include the component in the run-time image so that the application or device driver does not have to be installed on the target device.
