After creating your run-time image, there are several configuration settings that you must update, depending on the requirements of your run-time image and the target device.

  1. Expand the User Interface Core component in the configuration editor and choose Settings.
    The User Interface settings appear in the details pane.
  2. Select the following check boxes:
    • Show My Computer on Start Menu
    • Show Desktop icons (default)
    • Show Help and Support on Start Menu
    • Show Control Panel on Start Menu (default)
    • Show Network Connections on Start Menu
    • Show Search on Start Menu
    • Show Run on Start Menu (default)
    • Show Log Off on Start Menu (default)

    • Show Internet Explorer on Start Menu
    • Show All Programs list on Start Menu (default)
    • Enable Lock/Unlock of Task bar (default)
    • Enable Drag and Drop on Start Menu (default)
  3. At the top of the MySystem node in the configuration browser, choose Settings.
    The configuration settings appear in the details pane.
  4. Under Target Device Settings, choose Show.
  5. Type the correct values for the second hard disk where the Windows Embedded Standard OS will be deployed. For example, a second hard disk, with the letter D: and boot arc path of rdisk(1)partition(1) would require the following values:
    • Boot drive: D:
    • Windows folder: D:\WINDOWS
    • Program Files folder: D:\Program Files
    • Documents and Settings folder D:\Documents and Settings
    • Boot ARC path: multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1) (default)
    • Boot partition size (MB): 5000
    • Partition cluster size (bytes): 4096 (default)

You are now ready to check the dependencies of your configuration.
