    Hiya

    This QFE applies to Microsoft® Windows® XP Embedded with Service Pack 1 only.

    This is the component update to address a scenario when you build a Windows XP Embedded with Service Pack 1 runtime for a headless device and the device fails to boot properly. Since the device is headless, you have no way of knowing it is not booting. In order to boot, Windows XP Embedded requires a display driver. Headless systems have no display hardware, and therefore do not load display drivers, causing Windows XP Embedded to fail during the boot process.

    This update includes a new component, called "Virtual Display Driver", which provides the display driver Windows XP Embedded requires, but does not require underlying display hardware to load and run successfully.

    YOU MAY NOT PROVIDE THIS UPDATE OR THE LOCATION (URL) OF THIS UPDATE TO ANY THIRD PARTIES.

    System Requirements
    Supported Operating Systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP
