If you’ve seen the World of Windows video, you’ve seen how many embedded devices can fit into a given day (assuming you are really busy that day), but, during a recent trip to Ft. Lauderdale, I saw what may be one of the biggest uses of Microsoft technology. And I can’t over emphasize the size of it.
At nearly a quarter mile long, Royal Caribbean has built the two biggest cruise ships in the world – the Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas. To put that size in perspective, the Oasis of the Seas can cast a shadow on a 20 story building while stretching across four football fields – and there’s capacity for 8,600 people.
As the General Manager of Product Marketing at Windows Embedded, I make it a priority to visit our partners and see intelligent systems in action – and the intelligent system built by the team at Royal Caribbean is remarkable to see in person.

Today, Microsoft launched the “Designing the Future of the Intelligent Car” digital series to showcase the team we have working on Microsoft’s automotive solutions and our vision for the intelligent car of the future. To kick-off the series I’ve asked the leader of the Windows Embedded Automotive team, Pranish Kumar, to provide some perspective on the team and the work they are doing.
Hi – I’m Pranish Kumar and as Group Program Manager for the Windows Embedded Automotive team, I lead the group of developers and designers responsible for building, designing, and maintaining our automotive technology. We released this video series today to introduce some of the team working on the technology that will bring about our vision for the intelligent vehicle. I’m proud of this team. Whether at work or at home, this team is so passionate about cars and the opportunity to use technology to improve the car experience. They bring their work and play together, with many members spending their free time on things like re-building hot rods and participating in car clubs. I invite you to watch the videos to meet the team behind our product and learn about what makes us tick.

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.
