If both April 2012 WES09IE7WMP11 and June 2012 WES09IE7WMP11 security updates have been installed, there is a bug that causes duplicate "Primitive: Shlwapi" components in the database which may prevent successful image creation. The following workaround steps should be performed on machines used for creating images.
Steps to verify the workaround fix:

Doug Boling recently hosted one of his regular webcasts on Optimizing performance and power on Windows Embedded Compact 7 and has graciously provided me with a companion article. Thanks Doug! There’s more information later in the article about how you can sign up for these webcasts so please do join us for the monthly sessions.
Embedded hardware is slow. It’s designed that way. Unlike Personal Computers which are sold to customers who are dazzled by high gigahertz numbers and massive hard disks, embedded customers buy a widget that does something. If the widget does something well that’s all that matters, so the manufacturer of that widget is going to use the slowest (and often least expensive) hardware possible to implement that widget. This is one requirement that makes embedded software so challenging to write. Embedded software must have great performance so that the hardware can be as inexpensive as possible.
In this blog post, I will review some of the techniques for system design that can improve performance, and as a consequence, the power consumption of a system. I’ll also cover some lower level application driver characteristics that can lower power consumption directly.

This week, we joined Ford at gdgt Live New York where more than 1,500 gadget geeks streamed into Chelsea’s Altman Building to see the latest and greatest consumer technology. Many of them ended up planted in one of the brand-new Ford Focus Electrics to get a hands-on demo of Ford SYNC with MyFord Touch.
Many of the new gadgets I saw were designed for mobile devices. Phone covers, portable hard drives and headphones seemed to get the most attention. But what was really noticeable during the conversations I had was that people are still actively looking for ways to efficiently consume media. The portable consumption of news, video and other content appears to be a significant trend for a long time.
One key statement we heard over and over again was that people just want their device to work in the vehicle. Since SYNC is developed on the Windows Embedded Automotive software platform, there’s no need to worry about a specific device pairing with SYNC or it seamlessly integrating with the car. Part of what makes SYNC so great is that it welcomes most mobile devices into the vehicle—whether it’s today’s newest smartphone or that flip-phone from years past that some folks just can’t live without. Once you’ve paired your mobile device, Ford SYNC will remember that device. Every time you enter the car, it automatically connects. So even if you’ve left the phone in the trunk, it can still pair up.
