    Windows XPe Developer

    I am currently looking to develop a distribution of Windows XPe for a system I am making. The problem I am running into is that in order to get a distribution that doesn't expire after 120 days I have to buy the developer kit for $1000.

    I was wondering if there is anyone who has access to this kit and can build me a custom distribution (or at least compile one that I make) legally. I would be willing to compensate anyone who can do this for me.

    If you can't do this but can recommend a company that does, that information would also be helpful.

    Thanks everyone for your help!

    Any information about the licensing of Windows XPe would be great!

    in addition to the tools license, you'll need to get a device license which last I saw was somewhere around $90-$100 each.

    Have you been able to find a dealer to buy a license from?

    expensive way: pay all the licensing fees and go to town

    hard way: enroll back in school, download a free copy of XPe from the CS department.

    easy way: http://ubuntu.com

    So, the other question is whether you really need XPe at all? I've done a lot of work with XPe and unless it's for a retail product with very specific needs, its probably overkill. I don't think it gives as much benefit with the cheap processing power and storage we have nowadays. For hobbiests/consumers nLite is usually good enough.

    Thanks for the great informaton SFiorito!

    I think I am starting to realize that nlited XP is the way to go. I have a Windows XP home installation and I am going to start working on it.
