Re: Synchronizing with ui tread

RunAsync doesn't fire events, Events are less troublesome and lighter weight although what you suggest will probably solve his problem. This is what happens on Await : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh191443.aspx I think you will find events much easier to get your head wrapped around. I u...

Re: Synchronizing with ui tread

A lot of overhead and complexity when raising an event is what you really needed. :-) Because in essence you are blocking your timer thread until the await is satisfied. Might or might not have repercussions from that, such as missed counts.

Re: Synchronizing with ui tread

You can have the main thread/object (ui) register for an event and then in your gpio thread raise an event. You decide what data to pass, even an object.

Re: FTDI driver status

Unfortunately the D2XX WinRT drivers are not VCP, they use a dll to provide an interface. The VCP drivers are what we all know and love on other systems.

You should not expect useful WinIoT answers from Ame, he is a broken record.

Silicon Labs is also supposedly working on support according to a post I rea...

If you are in the directory where the presumably correct dism is located, add .\ in front of the command to be certain that you are executing the one in that directory and not from the Path setting.
