thoughts on moving vb.net app from win 7 pro to a win 7 embedded machine

Currently have a simple vb.net winforms application that is running on a standard windows 7 pc.

For a future project, the client wanted to look at using thin clients such as an HP with win 7 embedded.

I am wanting to know how much hard work its going to take to make my current application run on the embedded machine.   The current windows application is a basic windows form that does use the mysql.net connector to just send data from whats entered on the windows form to a mysql server on the network.

this should be easy to do without minimum effort. the main point is that you need to have the same framework running on Win7 Embedded and since it comes with .NET 2 & 3.5 installed, and you can also install .NET 4. there should be no problem.
