How to Configure DUA to Poll a Media Device (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


With the Device Update Agent (DUA) component, you can apply updates to a remotely deployed run-time image. The DUA service runs on the device, by polling a media device (such as a networked hard disk, CD-ROM, or Disk-on-key) for any updates.

QFEs for Windows Embedded Standard cannot be directly applied to a deployed run-time image with DUA. Instead, the files that constitute the QFE must first be extracted. Then, you author a script that copies the files to the device.

You must build a run-time image with the Device Update Agent component added to it before it can be updated.
