Please note the important support transitions happening for Windows XP Embedded.
Support for Windows XP Embedded Platforms on Service Pack 2
Support for Windows XP Embedded SP2 ended January 11, 2011—the date established upon the release of Windows XP Embedded SP3 in November, 2008. Support for both Windows XP Embedded Feature Pack 2007 and Windows XP Embedded Update Rollup 1.0 on SP2 also retired on that date. This announcement is in line with the Microsoft Support Lifecycle policy for Service Packs, which states that when a new service pack is released, Microsoft will provide 24 months of support for the previous service pack.
