XP Embedded推出到現在已超過10年了,由於他跟XP實在太相似了,越來越多的朋友都想在上面安裝Office / Visual Studio之類的軟體,這邊幫大家做一下說明:

就技術角度來看,我們可以透過各種方法去完成Office/Visual Studio安裝,但就微軟官方License Term Limitation來看是不合法的喔~

Device Limitations/Limited Use of Product

Licensee may not use or include Windows XP Embedded, the Windows XP Embedded run-time images, or any components thereof, in (i) the development of a general purpose computing device or (ii) any device or system in which a malfunction of the operating system would result in foreseeable risk of personal injury, death to the operator of the device or system, or to others, or severe physical or environmental damage.

Definition of an Embedded System

An "embedded system" is any computer system or computing device that performs a dedicated function or is designed for use with a specific embedded software application.

Embedded systems may use a ROM-based operating system or they may use a disk-based system, like a PC. But an embedded system cannot be used as a commercially viable substitute for multipurpose computers or devices.

This limits the use of office automation/personal computing functions (e-mail, word processing, spreadsheets, database, network browsing, scheduling, and personal finance) permitted with the particular embedded licensed product.

Definition of an Embedded System


An embedded system is any computer system or computing device that performs a dedicated function or is designed for use with a specific embedded software application. Embedded systems may use a ROM-based operating system or they may use a disk-based system, like a PC. An embedded system cannot be used as a commercially viable substitute for multipurpose computers or devices. This limits the use of office automation/personal computing functions (e-mail, word processing, spreadsheets, database, network browsing, scheduling, and personal finance) permitted with the particular embedded licensed product.

Windows Embedded Standard is licensed for devices that perform Office Automation and Personal Computing Functions only to the extent that the Office Automation and Personal Computing Functions: (i) directly support the operation of, and are an integral part of, the Embedded Application (defined below); and (ii) operate only when used with the Embedded Application (that is, the Office Automation and Personal Computing Functions shall only permit creation, play, display, or communication of content that is directly related to the commercial or industrial processes or tasks that the device is specifically designed to address).

An Embedded Application means industry or task-specific software programs and/or functionality that provide the primary functionality of the device and which offer significant functionality in addition to Windows Embedded Standard.

 

Note:

For more information, see your License Agreement on the Windows Embedded Standard disc, and Run-Time Image Licensing in the Windows Embedded Standard Studio Help.
