Saving Target Analyzer Output to a Floppy Disk (Windows Embedded Standard 2009)


With a standard floppy disk drive attached to your device, you can boot by using Windows PE, run Target Analyzer, and save the Devices.pmq file to a floppy disk.

  1. Set up your device with all of the peripherals you intend the device to have in its final configuration.

  2. Connect a CD-ROM drive to your device.

  3. Boot the device by using the Windows PE disc.

  4. Navigate to the \XPE directory and run tap.exe from the command line.

    The following code example shows the appropriate parameters:

    tap /O a:\Kiosk-HW.PMQ

    tap.exe will then produce a hardware profile, a .pmq file, of the target device and save the results to a:\Kiosk-HW.PMQ on drive A.

  5. Copy the Kiosk-HW.PMQ file to your development computer where you have installed the Windows Embedded Standard Tools and Database.
