HOWTO: Add Control Panel to a Minimal Operating System Build

Q256244



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Windows NT Embedded 4.0





SUMMARY

This article describes how to add Control Panel and its applications (applets) to a configuration containing the minimal operating system (OS) component in Windows NT Embedded.

This technique is not necessary for standard OS configurations, because the standard OS component contains Control Panel and it applications.

This technique does not add the Network application to Control Panel. Please see the "References" section for details on how to add the Network application.
