Windows Embedded Developer Update (WEDU) for Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) Service Pack 1 (SP1) re-offers updates that were already downloaded and seemingly imported to a distribution share (DS).
In this situation, the downloaded items were not actually imported to the distribution share. After the regindex file reaches its maximum size, you cannot import any more updates, and the import process silently fails. The maximum value for the regindex setting depends on the memory and configuration of the computer.
To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
In the distribution share path, rename the regindex file. The following is the default installation location for the WES7 SP1 distribution share:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Embedded Standard 7\DS64SP1
To reimport the updates, select the updates that were re-offered.
Click Download and Install, and then let WEDU finish the installation process. A new regindex file will be created automatically.
To verify that the previously offered updates are no longer being re-offered, click Start Scan. After scanning is complete, the items that were re-offered earlier should not be listed.
Important The Search Registry feature of the Find dialog box in Image Configuration Editor will no longer return items from the previous regindex file. It will return items only from the newly created regindex file. All other functions of the Find dialog box will continue to work as expected.
