Hi everyone. With the exciting release of Windows Embedded 8, and the amazing application experiences that are associated with this new platform, we wanted to talk about how, from the sensor to the cloud, a consistent data stream and application experience can be shared across a number of form factors using a single development toolset.
By optimizing our development, and helping you adopt using world-class development tools like Visual Studio, we enable organizations to standardize on one trusted platform, so you can develop cloud- connected services right down to embedded devices, and even the smallest of sensors like devices such as pulse oximeter sensors, used to record blood oxygen at family doctor offices.

On a recent trip to New York, I took a couple of hours out of the schedule to enjoy some Fifth Avenue “Retail Therapy”…please don’t tell my boss….
It is difficult in my line of business not to notice the differences in retail experiences, and how they can be improved. In this occasion a particular example came to mind, I would call this “Don’t Leave Me!!”
One large clothing store was on the itinerary. I really like this brand and I am a regular customer. However, on this visit I looked at what is a fairly typical situation from a “Why isn’t this better?” viewpoint. I selected the trousers (pants; I’m from the UK) I wanted, in my size and headed for the changing rooms. It was a wintery day, so after entering the cubicle I removed my coat, assembled my precious earlier purchases in the corner and got down to the business of trying the pants on.
Wrong size—too short and too small around the waist to even close. Peeking my head out the door, I saw no assistant. Now I enter into what I call “Changing Room Dilemma”—how do I get the size I want?

Mark Gladding is one of our program managers at Windows Embedded. Mark is responsible for manageability of Embedded device. Since joining the team last March he has worked on the Windows Embedded 8 Pro product and delivered updates on a number of releases, such as Kinect for Windows, RDP8, .NET 4.5 support for Windows Embedded Standard 7, and POSReady 7. He found some time in his schedule to discuss Write Filters.
This blog post is for using System Center Endpoint Protection 2012 SP1 on Windows Embedded Standard 7 and POS Ready 7 with File Based Write Filters. You have the following configuration:
You want to use File Based Write Filters (FBWF), and you want to make sure your device is always protected and up-to-date. How do you do that with the write filter enabled? More precisely, how do you protect the device with the write filter enabled and not lose your changes whenever the system reboots?

This was my fourth year participating in the TechDays France event with the Windows Embedded team. It’s been great to witness the event evolve and grow each year. In fact, Microsoft estimates that over 17,000 visitors attended this year.
The theme for our booth this year was around retail and hospitality. Windows Embedded extends Windows technologies to intelligent systems. Windows Embedded is already well installed and known in the retail industry and works with key technological partners, such as IER, Acrelec, Improveeze, IPM and Itelios, that work with most of the key retailers in France to deliver intelligent systems and seamless, personal retail experiences to customers. We invited our partners to demonstrate the exciting and innovative work they have created using Windows Embedded. These solutions offer a perspective to retailers and new experiences for the customers. Take a look.
