Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) is the fully embedded version of Windows 7. This version of Windows 7 was designed to allow OEMs to create and deploy devices using the same drivers and run the same application software as Windows 7.

Versions of WES 7

There are two versions of Windows Embedded Standard 7, “E” & “P” that are available in either 32-bit or 64-bit.

Building WES 7 Images

OEMs wishing to use WES 7 can build an image on their target platform by using bootable media with the Image Build Wizard (IBW). Using IBW for creating a basic image typically takes less than an hour, so validating that WES 7 is compatible with the OEM’s hardware and software is quick and easy. The Toolkit’s primary development program, Image Configuration Editor (ICE), allows OEMs to do advanced configuration changes.

This OS permits users to take advantage of unique capabilities known as Embedded Enabling Features. Using HORM (Hibernate Once Resume Many), the embedded operating system can boot quickly and valuable data can be protected from accidental corruption using EWF (Enhanced Write Filtering) and FBWF (File Based Write Filter).

The “P” version offers the richest set of components and features that enable advanced consumer and enterprise class devices. The WES7P SKU can include multi-touch, enhanced lockdown, enriched media capabilities and efficient network management using AppLocker, BitLocker and DirectAccess.
