Run-Time Image Replacement (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)

4/23/2012

You can service a run-time image by replacing the entire run-time image with an updated version. The updated run-time image includes all of the fixes, additions, and updates that are required to service the run-time image. For some types of devices, such as bootable CD-ROMs or network-hosted images, this is the only available method of servicing a run-time image.

In Target Designer, add QFE updates, component updates, or other additions to your configuration, and then rebuild and test your configuration. Once the run-time image is verified, you can distribute it to your devices.

One of the benefits of completely replacing a run-time image is that all dependencies are met, updates are applied, and other than updating the device with the new run-time image, there are no additional steps.

Although this scenario provides a complete run-time image update, it can be inefficient because of the amount of data to transfer to the device. Additionally, the boot media may require reformatting, or repartitioning.
