Windows® XP Embedded
Windows® XP Embedded is the modular variant of Windows® XP Professional. It's used if XP applications require a smaller operating system size to run. Together with CompactFlash memory, Windows® XP Embedded makes it possible to use the Microsoft desktop operating system in rough environmental conditions. In addition to the familiar features included in Windows® XP Professional, Windows® XP Embedded has been improved with regard to dependability by adding a write filter for individual memory partitions. By protecting individual partitions such as the boot partition, the PC system can be started without any problems, even after an unexpected power failure. Preinstalled Compact Flash cards offered by B&R for industrial PCs and Power Panel devices make the transition to Windows® XP Embedded as easy as possible. In addition to Windows® XP Embedded, the standard Windows® XP Professional operating system is also available in English, German and multilanguage. Unlike Windows® XP Embedded, however, this version must be activated by Microsoft.
