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. Target Designer, alongside another tool called Component Designer, comes packaged with 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 default configurations that you can allocate in Target Designer, however you can also create your own configurations, with many different features - ranging from drivers to the shell to applications included.
