I've been using XP Embedded for a while and I recently started working with Embedded Standard since that's the latest binaries for Windows Embedded and includes SP3. Everything works just as expected and the same way as XP Embedded but the one thing that really annoys me is the length it takes to build a run-time image. With XP Embedded I could build a run-time image in about 20 mins or less. With Embedded Standard it takes at least 45 minutes to an hour. I understand there are more files (SP3) files, but what really makes me wonder the most is that Target Designer sits on this file for the majority of the build:
Building: Windows XP Service Pack 1 Resource DLL: copying C:\Windows\System32\MUI\OCOA\xpsp1res.dll
So, it's taking all this time to copy 1 service pack 1 file?
Doesn't make sense, is there something I'm doing wrong with a new component or something?
