Windows XP Embedded Licensing
Posted on 2004-10-27
We currently have a client that runs 300-400 Windows NT boxes working off a Windows NT server, this is a Point Of Sale system that uses our own customer built software, we are now in the process of re-design and so forth.
XP Embedded sounds like the best idea for the new operating sysem on each of the display PC's and I do have the evaluation CD here and have experimented with it last year, however, reading small print, it says that XP Embedded must not be used on a real PC. I am currently using old Dell GX110 Pentium 3 with the Windows NT boxes for the display, the client is hoping that we don't have to trash them as they will run our new app, it just getting the licensing right.
The system is IP based and requires no direct or phisical registration with the server, the server will find the display over an internet/intranet.
So, XP Embedded on all the displays with Windows 2003 Server offering, can I do this?
Any thoughts on Client Access Packs? Device licensing?
What do I need?
