Introduction

Currently, you use the Windows Embedded Developer Update (WEDU) tool to update Windows Embedded Standard 7 SP1 (WES7 SP1) distribution shares (DS) and Windows Embedded 8 Standard (WE8S) catalogs. Since October 2016, Microsoft has stopped releasing individual updates for WES7 SP1 and WE8S. Instead, cumulative rollup updates are released every month for WES7 SP1 and WE8S.

End of WEDU publication of WES7 SP1 and WE8S updates

Starting in November 2018, no monthly, cumulative rollup updates for WES7SP1 and WE8S will be published to WEDU. We recommend that you get the Security Monthly Quality Rollup updates from the Microsoft Update Catalog. To update the WES7 SP1 distribution shares and WE8S catalogs, use the Import feature of the Image Configuration Editor (ICE) tool.

Update WES7 SP1 and WE8S using ICE

Please see the instructions for making future updates to WES7 SP1 distribution shares and WE8S catalogs using the ICE tool.

Important WEDU will continue to offer all the WES7 SP1 and WE8S updates that were released through October 2018.
