Windows Embedded 8 Standard consists of 3 DVD images (ISO's). Download the .exe and .rar files for each DVD image into its own folder and run the .exe file in that folder to reconstitute the .ISO file. It is recommended that users with older browsers (Internet Explorer 5, 6 and 7) use the download manager that is available here to optimize the download experience. Once the .ISO file is created you can then burn the ISO onto a blank DVD by software that supports DVD5 and DVD9 formats or mount the ISO as a virtual disk.
The toolkit DVD is used to install the Image Configuration Editor (ICE) and associated catalogs onto a development system. The 32-bit and 64-bit IBW DVDs are bootable WinPE DVDs that contain the Image Builder Wizard (IBW) and the corresponding 32-bit or 64-bit catalog. Typically these DVDs are used to boot into Windows PE on the target device and apply the runtime image created with ICE or to prototype image creation using the wizard and various templates available in IBW. Please read the Windows Embedded 8 Standard documentation for more information on using ICE and IBW to create and deploy runtime images to your devices.
