There is a new version of the WEDU client (v126.96.36.199) available that resolves the registration issue. You can download this new version from the DLC, here.
There are no other changes in this new version, so if you are already successfully registered through WEDU you do not need to upgrade your WEDU version from v188.8.131.52 to V184.108.40.206.
Monitoring and optimizing power consumption are frequently important considerations when creating embedded devices. Before he left his role as a Program Manager on the Windows Embedded team for another job, Thomas Yong created a PowerToy to help you understand your device’s power usage that we are releasing today - Power Manager.
Power Manager is a tool designed for Windows Embedded Standard 7 to monitor power management status and to perform battery measurement for battery operated devices.Its primary goal is to ease the battery measurement process by providing automation, data logging, and integration of other power performance analysis tools.
You can download Power Manager,as well as a thorough user guide, at http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/powermgr/.

While the typical development scenario for Windows Embedded Standard 7 is to first create an Answer File in Image Configuration Editor (ICE) and then deploy that to a device, it is also possible to do the reverse and generate an Answer File from an existing device.
There are several cases where this is useful:
