Re: How to get a perennial board-id for the RPi with iot-cor

Thanks. C#, and the path /proc/cpuinfo does not exist on the iot-core UWP.

How to get a perennial board-id for the RPi with iot-core?

I've searched all the forums I can find, and still find no reliable way to get a unique ID (any string) for a given RPi board using iot-core/UWP/C# (latest drop). This http://stackoverflow.com/questions/33960375/how-to-get-the-processor-serial-number-of-raspberry-pi-2-with-windows-iot gives me a dif...

Re: How to replace IotCoreDefaultApp startup permanently. It

I don't think it is that simple, since I also used the PowerShell commands, not just the web XAppManager. It is a showstopper bug, since it is reproducible on multiple boards. Who knows the best place to report this?

Re: How to replace IotCoreDefaultApp startup permanently. It

OMG. I can understand the occasional bug in a new product, but this makes the product essentially unusable in its current state. More significantly, it is a huge BUG, since all of the documentation describes a different (and logical) behavior. Who has some clout and where can we escalate this to get...

How to replace IotCoreDefaultApp startup permanently. It ret

Using the newest Windows-10 Iot-Core on a RaspberryPi, I can replace the (single) headed startup/default App via PowerShell command "IotStartup add headed" or I can use the AppXManager to achieve the same. Then I reboot, and the new default/startup headed app appears in the AppXManager as it should....

Re: Hardware Watchdog timer from C# ?

@ricl: Thanks, I see the diverse IotStartup commands and I tested several of them. I still don't see how to set up my headed (.exe) to run automatically at reboot without replacing the default startup program IoTCoreDefault. This IoTCoreDefault should remain the default startup app, if I have unders...

Re: Hardware Watchdog timer from C# ?

Do you know how to spin up your app/process automatically on boot without it being the default startup process or starting from VStudio? In fact, I'd like to spin up two additional procs upon reboot: my app and a watchdog for my app. Any tips appreciated!

Re: Windows 10 IoT Core Simple Serial Example not working

Great. Many thanks! Do you think this driver will also support the FT232RL ( http://wiki.in-circuit.de/images/d/da/610000191A.pdf ) that I have already? I'm searching for the difference between drivers -- if any -- but don't see anything yet.

Re: Windows 10 IoT Core Simple Serial Example not working

Great! After several attempts at plugging in the USB-TTL Adapter at the right moment with a non-usb power supply -- and then standing on my head -- it worked! The NULL-source in the sample finally came up with something other than a null and I was able to transmit data. Many thanks for this tip! ......

Re: Windows 10 IoT Core Simple Serial Example not working

:-) OMG. I'll be right back... Wait - a powered USB-hub for the USB-TTL-adapter side of things, I assume? I have a FTDI USB-RS485 adapter waiting to be used, but no driver for Windows 10 IoT to be found as far as I can see...

Windows 10 IoT Core Simple Serial Example not working

Hi, I have reproduced this example "to the T" but when I connect to the device I always get a null returned. Sample and sources used: https://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/win10/samples/SerialSample.htm The device (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LODGRV8 ) is the same one used in the example. T...
