    And how exactly do you expect someone to provide you with a download link when the RTM release is not until July 1st?

    If you don't want to wait another few days, Windows Embedded Standard 7 is available for download if you have a Windows live id. You can use the IBW to create your own pick and mix "thin clients" with a better range of features than the Windows Thin Client so far previewed. Using the templates provided it's a doddle to use the IBWizard and produce a working Windows 7 system in about the same time it takes to install windows from a DVD.

    WES7 clients created in this way have a 180 day trial grace period, and it is not apparent when, or how the IBW or ICE packages will time out if at all. You can sysprep and reactivate working systems up to 4 times.

    Click "Get Started" at:

    w w w .microsoft.com/windowsembedded/en-us/downloads/download-windows-embedded-standard-7.aspx

    for access to IBW (x86 and x64) and ICE downloads and your trial activation key.

    At first I thought it was a portable Windows 7 :biggrin:, but I'm disappointed. Only certain types of applications can run such as remote desktop or media players:

    Microsoft say one thing, but in reality as far as the WinTPC trial RC released in April was concerned, Microsoft Office (2010, XP and 97) all could be installed and ran fine, as well as IE9 and 3rd party browsers and utilities. The only things I was not able to run were Microsoft's own Security Essentials and Windows Virtual PC. Anything that checks specifically for a particular Windows 7 edition (or range of editions) may have difficulty running (i.e. Daz's Loader does not recognize the Embedded Standard 7 as being a valid version). Media player 12 was included, but no codecs were, so it was crippled. VLC installed and ran perfectly.

    The Write Filter components, if enabled, prevent changes to the system allowing a stateless operation from boot to boot, but if disabled, the system behaves with normal saves to program files, registry and user folders and libraries.

    The code-base of Windows Embedded Standard 7 is the same as Windows 7, so any Windows 7 capable programs, and anything that runs with compatibility modifications on 7 should install and run on WES7 applications of which TPC is just one of many possible combinations of the WES7 components. There are bound to be a few exceptions.

    As far as Daz's loader is concerned, it puts up the dialog with "Unsupported OS information" - it checks the version and gracefully informs that the OS is unsupported. It is reasonable to expect that it would not function on the WES7 activation mechanism.

    Any other program that does similar checks, for instance utilities that are available for home versions, but do not run on server versions of an OS may also not support Windows Embedded if the OS version check excludes it.

    According to the WES7 development team, activation is obtained during manufacture with the application of an OEM volume activation product key - a single key per OEM or per agreement. Online connectivity is not required and there is no notification to users. So it is neither KMS nor MAK in the usual sense - since the environment for embedded systems may not have connectivity with license servers and needs to be robust enough to continue to remain activated without connectivity.

    According to Britt Udy, product licensing and activation strategist with MS Windows Embedded says: "a modest set of traceability is built in" to prevent piracy.

    Yeah, WES7 only works with volume license runtime keys, WinTPC will work with KMS and MAK though.

    Also Windows TPC works with anything, I use it on my older laptops. It runs better than starter. Also runs XBMC well.

    RemoveWAT is a crap solution!! MS can easily catch u... well Windows Loader can only work if & only if an OEM:SLP key is leaked. Now the question is, from where do u find it?? :eek:

    Right, there won't be any OEM:SLP keys because it's not available for OEMs to install on new machines; after all its purpose is to be used on existing older machines and therefore a loader will not work.
    So please don't "confirm" something like that if you don't know what you're talking about.
