Session 2: What's New in Feature Pack 2007 for Windows XP Embedded

And as if the sessions aren't enough the following hands on labs will also be available - the really neat thing about the labs is that you don't need to download or install any of the operating system development tools, you can run through the labs from the MSDN/Virtual labs site using a Virtual PC image exposed through a web page - Very Cool!

    6. Oskar,

      The link didn’t work for me either today at work – same error as you.  I tried it just before from home and have now successfully registered for the event.

      Cheers, Michael.

      When I click the "Register" button I get prompted to enter my Passport credentials – I’ve tried this in the office and at home, seems to work in both places for me.

    8. Oskar Berreteaga says:

      I finally managed to register from home, but had to retry a couple of times.
