TFTP Timeout while downloading Compact 7 to a Virtual PC target (and possibly others)

Home/Uncategorized/TFTP Timeout while downloading Compact 7 to a Virtual PC target (and possibly others)

I encountered an error the other day when downloading Windows Embedded Compact 7 to a Windows Virtual PC on a Windows 7 host machine. Platform Builder initially started the download process and then immediately stopped with a TFTP time out error.

I found this entry on Olivier Bloch MSDN Blog:

It seems that disabling the UDP check sum for IPv4 on the Ethernet adaptor shared between the host Windows 7 computer and Virtual PC solves the problem:
