Remove Indexing Service Components (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


If Indexing Services are not required on your target device, you can remove the following components from your run-time image:

  • Indexing Service
  • Filter Mime Messaging

Indexing service installs Fast Find indexing. This is used only by the search function in Windows. For Windows Embedded Standard, the service is not enabled by default, and in many cases, can be safely removed. Removing these components can save an estimated 16 MB.
