Product Description

From the Back Cover

Learn to program an array of customized devices and solutions

Written by a team of experienced experts in the field, this in-depth resource provides you with invaluable information about the compact, scalable operating system, Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7). The authors explore why Compact 7 is considered to be one of the best options for developing highly efficient, real-time applications using native code to access low-level system resources and hardware. After a general overview of the Windows Embedded Compact operating system, the authors walk you through OS design, debugging and debugging tools, application and driver development using Visual Studio, system registry, and much more. Finally, helpful sample projects and exercises aim to get you started performing a variety of development tasks immediately.

Professional Windows Embedded Compact 7:

  • Covers development station preparation, including requirements and setup

  • Walks you through the process of developing and deploying a WEC7 device

  • Explores platform builder and OS design

  • Discusses device driver, interrupts, stream interface drivers, and the board support package

  • Examines extending low-level system access to managed code applications with messages

  • Takes a look at the USB camera driver project on Codeplex, the WEC webcam project

While Windows 7 is long gone many of the principles are still relevant, perhaps even more so now that .net has been made open source on github.
