I’m here in Washington, D.C., at Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), spotlighting our Internet of Things (IoT) strategy and associated technologies.
Microsoft’s focus at WPC this year is the “five trends of the modern IT industry” — cloud, data, leadership, mobility and social — and it’s worth noting IoT’s clear relevance. Underscoring IoT’s tremendous opportunity across these trends as a business catalyst for our partners is a significant focus for me during the event, and we’re offering multiple IoT-related sessions — including one on using our new Microsoft Azure Intelligent Systems Service — to help partners capitalize on the opportunity.

It’s finally here: Today marks the kickoff of Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference, WPC 2014, here in Washington, D.C. and the Internet of Things (IoT) Industry team couldn’t be more excited about what’s in store for partners.

If you’re wondering where you can find IoT at this year’s conference,

Earlier today, Microsoft announced a new Windows Developer Program for IoT – further evidence of our commitment to developing great technologies for the Internet of Things, and bring Windows to ever-smaller devices. We’ve also introduced a new Windows Developer for IoT portal, with documentation and examples to support the developer kits that will be shipped in small batches.

On Windows Embedded 8 Standard, if you attempt to use WEDU to search for updates and the scan fails with the following error in the log (wedu.log):
Application Version: 18.104.22.168
=== EXCEPTION ===System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x8024002E): Exception from HRESULT: 0x8024002E at WUApiLib.IUpdateSearcher.BeginSearch(String criteria, Object onCompleted, Object state) at Microsoft.Wedu.Mu.UpdateTarget.CreateScanJob(IAsyncResult ar, Func`1& IsCompleted, Func`1& AsyncState, Func`1& CompletedSynchronously) at Microsoft.Wedu.Mu.AsyncResultAdapter..ctor(AsyncCallback outerCallback, Object outerState, JobCreateDelegate innerResultFunc, AsyncCallback innerCallback) at Microsoft.Wedu.Mu.UpdateTarget.<DoScan>d__3.MoveNext()
The most common cause of this error is the presence of the following registry key with a value other than 0:
The workaround for this error is to either delete this registry key or set the value to 0.

In Standard 8, if you use Create Media from Image Configuration Editor (ICE), then create an .ISO from that media, you will not be able to use that .ISO to install Standard 8 on a device. Instead, you will get an error stating "Windows Setup failed to open catalog". This is because the media created by ICE is not designed to create an .ISO and thus does not include the .LOCK file that is required to created "locked" copies of the catalog database files.As a workaround, before creating the .ISO from the media file created by ICE, copy the .LOCK file located in C:\Windows Embedded Catalog\.lock, then proceed to create or burn the .ISO. This .LOCK file can also be located on the Windows Embedded 8 Standard DVD in the *\Catalog\.lock directory.
