Components that are not essential from earlier versions of
the repository may appear in an upgraded repository.
applies to customers who are using the following user input (UI) resources:
- Simplified Chinese
- Traditional Chinese
If you are upgrading your configurations (your .slx files) from
Windows XP Embedded (original release to manufacturing [RTM]) to Windows XP
Embedded with Service Pack 1 (or later), Microsoft recommends that you follow
the instructions in the "More Information" section of this article.
When upgrading a system from an RTM configuration to SP1, some hidden
components remain in the configuration if the RTM configuration contained any
of the following components, and
if the Include multilanguage user interface
check box was selected:
- Chinese Simplified Language Support
- Chinese Traditional Language Support
- French Language Support
- German Language Support
- Korean Language Support
- Japanese Language Support
Some hidden components may remain in the SP1 configuration if
they were in the RTM configuration (by default, these are not
hidden for Japanese). For each language listed earlier (except
Japanese), these hidden components are as follows:
- Language App Help MUI
- Language ER MUI (or Japanese Err
- Language Internet Explorer MUI
(or Japanese IE5 MUI)
- Language MediaPlayer Skins
- Language MediaPlayer Support
- Language Movie Maker
- Language PCHealth Help
- Language Search Assistant
- Language Shell MUI
- Language Windows Media
- Language Windows Tour
- Language WM PRX MUI
is Chinese -
Simplified, Chinese - Traditional, French, German, or Korean.
these components from your configuration before you perform the upgrade. For
information about how to remove these components, see the "More Information"
section of this article.
This behavior is caused by a mismatch of the version
independent globally unique identifiers (VIGUIDs) between the RTM versions and
the SP1 versions of the hidden components that are listed earlier. Because the
VIGUID mismatch prevents the upgrade path from being established, RTM versions
of the components remain in the configuration even after the configuration
update is complete.
Although you cannot replace mismatched IDs because they are
stored in individual .slx files, you can work around the issue by following the
steps in the "More Information" section of this article.
Before the Upgrade
Before you perform the upgrade, follow these steps (after you
upgrade, follow the step later in this article):
- Before upgrading a Chinese, French, German, or Korean RTM
configuration, set Target Designer visibility to 100:
With your configuration open in Target Designer, on
the Tools menu, click Options, click Advanced, and then change the visibility. This causes the hidden
components to be visible in Target Designer.
NOTE: Japanese users must follow this step only if the visibility was
changed from its default setting.
- Delete the list of hidden components from the RTM
NOTE: Do not delete the language support components. Do not delete any
other components, such as Language MUI Resource components, if they do not fit the description listed
- Perform the upgrade to the configuration:
Target Designer, on the Configuration menu, click Upgrade Configuration. Ignore the warnings about the component in the configuration.
After the Upgrade
After the upgrade is complete, the computer has SP1
configuration. Follow this step:
- Perform a dependency check.
A set of SP1 MUI
support components (similar to the ones you deleted in step 2 before the
upgrade) will be added to the configuration.
After this is complete, you can build SP1 versions of images in
all the languages listed earlier in this article.
