|Annabooks Announces New Book: Start Guide
for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, 2nd Edition
Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise is a special version
of Windows 10 designed for OEMs to build
IoT/Embedded Systems. To help to create custom
images, the Windows® System Image Manager (SIM)
tool allows PC Manufacturers, IT Managers, and
IoT/Embedded Developers to automate the
installation of Windows operating systems. SIM
allows developers to install applications, device
drivers, and Windows updates along with the
Windows operating system. The ability to automate
operating system installation helps to remove any
human error that can occur with manual
installation. The ability to maintain and support
many platforms over a long life-cycle is also an
important asset in today’s ever-changing
technology. To perform all these tasks, a solid
workflow to develop the image from the ground up
is important. This 2nd edition dives
deeper into the development process.
Workflow – A development process that
has been in use since Windows XP Embedded and
evolved over the different Windows Embedded
releases. The development workflow provides the
best-known steps to create and maintain a custom
image using System Image Manager.
– Windows security features and
terminology have changed since Windows 10 was
first released. The current security features are
discussed in clearer detail and integrated into
the larger lockdown.
scrips – SIM doesn’t have a setting for
everything. The downloads for the book contain
some of the popular scripts for custom settings
such as audio volume level, sticky keys, network
IP setup, hide the taskbar, and visual effects.
tools – the book covers the Shell
Launcher, UWF, and Key Filter utilities from
Annabooks, as well as, other tools for
partitioning disks and setting Group Policy.
– various tips to help reduce the image
footprint for systems that have smaller drive
space are discussed.
– discover how to get the best
performance out of the system.
Bus API – creation applications that
access GPIO, SPI, I2C, and UART is presented.
There are 17 chapters with hands-on exercises to
focus on the workflow and specific features. The
final chapter pulls all the topics together to walk
through the workflow to create a weather station
device that sends data to Azure IoT Central.
