Command-Line Tool Guide

The Windows® XP Embedded Command-Line Tool (XPECMD) is a command-line utility that provides a powerful, scriptable interface to the Component Management Interface (CMI), which is the basis for all of the Windows XP Embedded tools.

XPECMD enables you to perform many of the same tasks as in the GUI tools, including creating and opening runtime configurations, adding, modifying and removing component instances, resolving dependencies, building runtimes, and importing components into your database. The following sections provide information on how you can accomplish some of the more common tasks.

For more complete information on command-line usage, type xpecmd.wsf /? at the command prompt.

For more complete information on individual XPECMD commands, type help or help <command> within the program.
