FIX: "C7NR" SKU components are reported as "C7G" or "C7P" by the Run-Time License Assessment Tool for a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based image

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Windows Embedded Compact 7-based operating system (OS) design that includes only the "C7NR" stock-keeping unit (SKU) components.
  • You include any of the following five catalog items in the OS design and then build the run-time image:
  • You run the Run-Time License Assessment Tool on the run-time image.

In this scenario, the Run-Time License Assessment Tool reports the run-time image as the "C7G" SKU or as the "C7P" SK, instead of as the "C7NR" SKU.

Additionally, the last three SYSGEN catalog items in the following list are moved from the "C7G" SKU and the "C7P" SKU to the "C7NR" SKU because the SYSGEN_LOCALAUDIO catalog item has a dependency on those catalog items:
