I've got som t510's running Windows Embedded CE 6.0, which doesn't suit my purpose that well. Can I change OS to ThinPro on these clients just by "flashing" a new image to the client, or are there any licensing issues that will prevent this? Do I have to buy ThinPro from somewhere?

You should be able to flash these without issue to either ThinPro or Smart Zero. If you wanted to move towards WES7 or another flavor of WES, then the licensing from MS may get a little tricky.

I have some t510 units that have WES, and I want to change them to ThinPro. I see that I can download the image. What is the process? My apologies, but I am new to the thin client environment.

When it deploys it on the USB key you can put the key into a Thin Client and boot it from there which flashes your unit to ThinPro. You can do the same to the other units. If you have many units you could flash one unit via the USB key and then capture and deploy this image via HP Device Manager from www.hp.com/go/hpdm

of course you can.
Either do a Backup of the original OS to a USB Key using preinstalled HP Software or the "better" solution:
Install HP Device Manager (http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/public/
If it doesn´t fit your needs simply flash it back to the previsously backed up Windows CE (or whatever).
