Embedded product group has been asked by customers to reduce the size of monthly Windows XP Embedded and Windows Embedded Standard 2009 Security Update supplemental releases on Microsoft OEM Online (MOO) and Mobile Communications Extranet (ECE). “Beginning January 2010 supplement, we’ve implemented a new process that provides the DQIs for Dec 2009 and Jan 2010 as well as cumulative component database updates for each platform, which still contain all Security updates since the platform release through Dec 2009. DQIs will accumulate for each supported platform throughout the year. At the beginning of 2011, we’ll do a similar refresh.” “As a result, Jan 2010 IMG file is reduced to approximately 256MB, that’ll increase throughout the year, and be reduced again with Jan 2011 update,” writes Microsoft.
