Additional Details:

In Odd numbered months, the Security Supplement Update CD contains the Security DQI updates for just that current month, and cumulative Component Database updates in the \Windows folder for each supported Embedded version (SP2, Feature Pack 2007 or Update Rollup 1.0) through the previous even numbered month. In Even numbered months, the Security Supplement Update CD contains the Security DQI updates for just that current month, and the cumulative Component Database updates for each supported Embedded version, which are updated to include the previous odd numbered month, and the current even numbered month updates.

If you are servicing your existing development environment:

On the Embedded Security Supplement Update CD in the \Windows folder, there is a Component Database Update available for each supported Embedded product version (SP2, FP2007, UPR1). If you install the Component Database update applicable to the product version you are using, your database will be current with security updates up to and including the most current even month’s security updates.

If you are servicing deployed images:

Assuming you had the cumulative Component Database updates applied to your development environment  on your image creation date, you need only deliver the DQI updates for each month following your release date and have them applied directly to the image ­or you can update your development environment as described above, and deliver a new image for re-deployment. There may be other methods you employ for servicing your images, these are the two most basic approaches you can take with the updates we provide.

If you are a new developer installing XP Embedded for the first time:

Install XP Embedded up to the product version you wish to use (SP2, Feature Pack 2007 or Update Rollup 1.0). Then install the cumulative Database Component updates provided for that version from the latest Security Supplement Update CD to bring your database up to date with all security updates up to the most recent even numbered month.

Miscellaneous Optional updates:

You will also see other updates available on the ECE which are Optional Updates. These may or may not be applicable to your image and you can review the release notes for applicability to determine if you wish to implement them. These may be provided in DQI format, Component Database update format, or both.

Note:

The Security Supplement Updates were called just Supplement Updates through October 2007, when the name changed to Security Supplement Updates.
