    EWF Overlay Limits on Windows Embedded Standard 2009 and 2011

    Introduction

    When using Enhanced Write Filter (EWF) in RAM or RAMREG mode several customers might assume the EWF overlay is limited solely by the availability of physical memory. Consequently, many assume they will be able to achieve an overlay twice as big on a system with 2 GB RAM than on a system with 1 GB RAM. This is not true by any means. This article explains the factors that limit the overlay size and the significant improvements seen on Windows Embedded Standard 2011.

    If you are interested more in the conclusion than the internals, skip the following sections and jump directly to the “Results and Conclusion” section.

    EWF – Mass deployment check list for Windows Embedded Standard 7

    For the past several months we have received several mass deployment related queries for EWF. Many customers had skipped or were unaware of the Sysprep requirement. To help customers we have compiled a checklist for use during mass deployment of images containing EWF. Hope it helps!

    1. Install and fine tune the master image. Disable HORM and EWF. Restart the machine.

    2. Sysprep (available in %WINDIR%\System32\Sysprep directory) the image by running <sysprep.exe /generalize /oobe /shutdown>. This will generalize the image and render all system components (including write filters) and settings suitable for mass deployment. Upon completion the machine will be shutdown.

    Microsoft and Ford look further

    Posted By Chris Elliott
    Senior Marketing Communications Manager

    Go Further with Ford Trend Conference is becoming an annual pilgrimage for journalists and bloggers interested in learning more about Ford, its business plans, and its newest model lineup. This event at Ford’s headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan attracts hundreds of journalists from all over North America to learn about the company and its cars, including the technology Ford uses in its products and its plans for its technological future. And we had the opportunity to share our vision for the connected car with attendees.

    It’s not very often the Ford Motor Company opens its top secret testing facility for media to not only get a peek at the facilities, but also to experience firsthand some of the brand’s latest offerings. And this rare treat was not lost on the event’s participants. To make the experience even more special for its guests Ford created various stations and courses to showcase the new Mustang and its All-American muscle; get a ride in a police interceptor with a professional driver behind the wheel; experience the surprising off-the-line torque of an electric car; and participate in a tech relay race that featured self-parking cars and automatic lift gates.

    And, lest I forget, the off-road thrill ride that challenges the senses while testing one’s notion of what a truck can do in the dirt when in the hands of a slightly crazed professional driver. The truck? The exciting 2013 Ford Raptor.

    This year, Bill Ford Jr. kicked off the event and discussed with the audience the company’s global vision of what Ford is doing with its advance technology research. Bill’s concerned about the planet, its population of people and how best to prevent things like 100 mile traffic jams from happening again in developing countries. He also sees how the millions of bits of information that are being generated daily by automobiles on the road can be used to help conserve fuel, reduce pollution and even stress in our daily lives.

    Signs of the times: the shifting consumer experience, part 1

    Posted By Guillaume Estegassy
    Windows Embedded Business Group Lead for Japan

    From attracting customers through digital signage to creating in-store dressing-room intelligent systems, technology is no doubt transforming the consumer experience. Today, Guillaume Estegassy brings you part one of our two-part blog series exploring these ‘smart’ shopping trends.

    As a daily user of the remarkable Tokyo metro and train systems, alongside 40 million people (yes, that is daily), I started to notice something peculiar: empty conventional signage spaces.

    Where you have an opportunity to reach tens of thousands of people a day in one given station, why isn’t every signage space occupied? Simply because they are evolving, from a past where static, “disconnected,” mono-directional communication tools are no longer relevant. Indeed, if I owned a business and wanted to increase my reach, what would compel me to rent this empty space? I’d want to know how many people look at it; whether they are men, women, adults, kids; how long they looked at it; and if they were happy, or making a face. I’d want to see the data to support the claims, too. Am I asking for too much? Not anymore. As the technology is becoming available today, these questions are also part of the thinking process when considering digital signage.
