Windows XP Embedded is growing in popularity as a solution for many embedded systems. Built on Windows XP Embedded, Windows Embedded for Point of Service address the basic operating system needs for those developing point of service solutions.

To go with the WEPOS platform, POS for .NET is the .NET programming solution of the Unified POS (UPOS) standard. POS for .NET allows POS developers to write one application that support POS devices from different equipment manufacturers. WEPOS / POS for .NET Step-By-Step provides a foundation for those interested in learning the basics of WEPOS and POS for .Net.

  • WEPOS Unattended Installation, Remote Installation, and Remote Boot
  • Customizing the WEPOS Platform
  • POS for .NET Architecture
  • Creating and Managing Service Objects
