When we launched Windows Embedded Compact 2013 in June 2013, we created an operating system platform well suited for creating small-footprint devices that provide silicon flexibility with real-time capabilities. We also updated the product with the latest tools and technologies by integrating with the latest Visual Studio (at the time, Visual Studio 2012), Compact .Net Framework 3.9 (based on .Net Framework 3.9), and a new compiler with better optimization, networking and cloud capabilities.
