Windows Embedded Standard 7 Updates Through WEDU Temporarily Not Available

If you are using WEDU (Window Embedded Developer Update), you will not see any updates on Windows Embedded Standard 7 currently. That is because all Standard 7 updates are temporarily being turned off by Microsoft Update.

[Updated: 9/21/2010, 9:45PM PDT]

However the updates are still available through our other regular channels, e.g. ECE and MOO. The updates being turned off are for developers only. They are the so called "Developer Updates". Updates to devices that are built on Windows Embedded Standard 7, aka "Device Updates", are not affected as Windows Updates are available as usual.

This temporary outage of the developer updates is due to an issue Microsoft Update found earlier this week. Microsoft Update team has been actively investigating and hasn’t confirmed if the updates from us caused the problem. Once we receive more info, we’ll let you know. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

If you have any feedback (such as the impact to your business or your customer’s business), please feel free to share with us here or email us. Thank you.

    It is still down. I was at a customer site setting up their development environment and was not able to down load the updates. Any answer file I have with the updates will flag the missing packages. Do know when WEDU will be operational again?

    Thanks for the patience. WEDU is back up now and publishing updates again. We are working with the Microsoft Update team to get the updates that were authored since the site went down to get them up ASAP.
