Windows NT 4.0 Embedded is a componentized version of Windows NT 4.0 Workstation intended for use in embedded units. It was released on 30 August 1999.

Unlike any other installation of Windows, which you would install by booting into its installation media and then simply setting it up, Windows NT 4.0 Embedded is instead built and deployed with a tool called Target Designer, which is bundled alongside Component Designer into Windows NT 4.0 Embedded's installation media. Although Component Designer can be used for certain purposes, only Target Designer is needed for a regular Windows NT 4.0 Embedded image.

There are 3 configurations bundled by default in Target Designer. The utility may also be used to create custom configurations which define different features such as drivers, shell settings, applications included, etc.
