Default Windows XP Embedded

okay, so i dont know who here is familiar with Windows XP Embedded Studio and Target Designer, but I have a problem.

I need to run the program tap.exe on the system that im building the image for.
How am I supposed to run a windows executable on it? I dont want to waste time installing XP Pro, running tap.exe, and there reformatting again...

okay I got it.
Installed the oldest, smallest Windows OS (NT 4.0) I had around.
Ran tap.exe
went back on my computer and finished the Embedded build
Took out my clients hard drive, set it to slave and put it in my machine
Deleted all the NT OS files
Copied the XPe build onto the drive
set the drive back to master and put it into the client machine
and it works!
