1. What Windows* operating systems are officially supported by Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers?
Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers supports the following Windows* operating systems:
2. Do Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers support Windows 7* / Windows Embedded Standard* 7 (WES7)?
No. Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers do not support Windows 7 nor Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7).
3. Do Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers support Windows Vista*?
Yes. Microsoft Windows Vista is supported as a POR operating system for all Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers ECG chipsets supported by Windows XP SP3.
Note: Windows Aero is not supported by Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers under Windows Vista. ''Aero'' is Microsoft's code name for the Microsoft Vista theme or shell. Windows Aero is a graphics function that adds glass or translucent effects to menus, balloons, and dialog boxes in Windows Vista along with 3D scrolling. Aero's purpose is to add more intuition to toolbars and navigation.
For more information on Aero check this out: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista/vista_aero.htm.
Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers 10.3.1 does not include support for Vista 2D + 3D nor Vista DirectX 9.0L, DirectX 10.0 (Combine with MS Vista 2D + 3D).
To generate a CED Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers package for Microsoft Windows Vista:
4. What graphics driver should I use for my US15WP/WPT chipset-based platform under Windows Embedded Standard 7?
Please check the Intel® Embedded Media and Graphics Driver (Intel® EMGD) for support.
5. When will Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers support Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) on Intel® Atom™ N270 + 945GSE chipset-based platforms?
Now. However, customer-based platforms using the Intel® Atom™ N270 + 945GSE chipset must use the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (Intel® GMA) driver for Windows 7 / Windows Embedded Standard 7.
Support for Windows Embedded Standard 7 is not on the Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers roadmap for Intel® Atom™ N270 + 945GSE chipset-based platforms.
6. When will Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers support Windows Embedded Standard* 7 (WES7) on Intel® Atom™ 400/500 series, which is comprised of the combined 945 GPU core and the Intel Atom processor-based platforms?
Now. However, customer-based platforms using the Intel Atom processor 400 and 500 series must use the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (Intel GMA) driver for Windows 7 / Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7).
Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers supports other non-WES7 Windows and Linux* operating systems for systems using the Intel® Atom™ processor 400 and 500 series (integrated 945 GPU core + Intel Atom™ processor).
Support for Windows Embedded Standard 7 is not on the Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers roadmap for Intel Atom processor 400 and 500 series-based platforms.
7. When will Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers support Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) on Intel Atom processor E6xx series-based platforms?
Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers do not support Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) now nor will it do so in the future.
8. Can a host system running Windows 7 64-bit version use CED to generate an Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers 10.x driver package?
Yes, a host system running Windows 7 64-bit can be used to build an Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers 10.x driver package, but CED must be run in Microsoft Virtual PC* Windows XP mode as some utilities used to generate VBIOS in CED are Windows XP applications. Access the link below to obtain more background information on Microsoft Virtual PC mode: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx.
9. Which QFE patches are supported for Windows CE 6.0 R2?
Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers support the latest Microsoft QFE patch dated June 9, 2009 in Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers 10.2 and Intel Embedded Graphics Drivers 10.3.
10. How do I need to patch my Platform Builder environment to align with Intel® Embedded Graphics Drivers?
Please use the following steps to patch Platform Builder environment:
1. Patch platform builder with following patch orders (please follow the order):
2. Manually copy the wmvdmod.lib and wmvdmod.pdb files:
3. Manually copy the wmvdmod.lib and wmvdmod.pdb files from:
Note: Please back up the new wmvdmod.lib and wmvdmod.pdb file after patch.
4. Perform clean sysgen.
