    Componentizing drivers or applications is always a challenge in a Windows Embedded Standard 2009 project. In some cases components are created easily with the help of the import function in Component Designer, which enables the import of the hardware detection result file (.pmq) from Target Analyzer, setup information files (.inf) used for driver installations or registry export files (.reg) created by Regedit.exe.

    Devices built with Windows Embedded Standard 2009 are able to offer sophisticated security mechanisms that integrate well in Enterprise scenarios, depending on the components that are included in the image. But, as always, more functionality means higher image footprint and so it is good to treat security considerations not as an afterthought, but as an important item on the requirements list, when designing the device architecture.
