I get asked all the time, about how to brand an embedded device so it doesn’t look like a PC. With Windows Embedded, we plan for custom branding experience right from the start.
we’ve included Embedded-specific packages with Windows Embedded Standard 7 like unbranded Startup Screens package, Custom Logon Desktop Background Images, Hide Boot Screens, Message Box Default Reply, Dialog Box Filter, and our Command Prompt Shell with Custom Shell Support.
Lots of different ways to highly customize the branding on a device, so that the end user never sees a “Microsoft brand” on the device…
But what about our BugCheck Screen? (for the noobs, the famed ‘Blue Screen of Death’)
