When you install, update, or repair Windows Embedded Compact 7, the installation may not succeed if your computer restarts, hibernates, or enters sleep mode during the installation.

In this article:



Cause

If a computer restarts, hibernates, or enters sleep mode while you are performing a Windows Embedded Compact 7 installation, update or repair, the Compact installer perceives the previous installation to have stopped and left the computer in an unknown state. It may then uninstall Compact completely.



Resolution

To work around this issue, do not allow your computer to restart, hibernate, or enter sleep mode when performing an update.
