Re: Windows 10 SD Image download

So I see that Windows 10 IoT is out but I also see its circus to get it installed and running on an PI. So I have to have Windows 10 on my main PC before I can test it on a Pi. Seems sorta silly. Has no one in the community not already gone through this process and then imaged there flash card and ...

Re: USB -> Serial support

ok, I will try to contact FTDI and see if they have any plans to create a Windows 10 Universal Driver. Any progress with FTDI? I wonder if the WinRT version would work..... Also, did you use SerialDevice on Windows 8.1? If so how did you get this to work, I can compile but fails to find the correct...

Re: Access to Serial Port from UAP?

There is a thread elsewhere here outlining what the present state of serial support for WinIoT is, namely usb adapters only. The pin header serial on the RPi is used for WinDbg purposes at the present time. MS might enable use of the hardware serial io port when WinIoT is final release or it might n...

Re: Can't remote login

Just be aware that there are risks associated with running with UAC disabled.

I use Windows 8.1 and haven't seen your specific issue... so maybe related to Win 7.

Re: Can't remote login

Someone else reported that not having a password on Windows 7 account caused this symptom. They turned off UAC which should only be a temporary solution. Best to set an account pw if not already done.

Re: Win 10 on Pi 2 Micro SD card issue [SOLVED]

Slight correction, you can install from Windows 7 and 8 as well. You must of course have the WinIoT .ffu file to load onto the SD card.

The dism.exe tool is available from the ADK (not SDK) from here: (near bottom of page) https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/window ... 13721.aspx

As I have no idea what the actual definition of IoT (Internet of Things) is, I decided to look it up at wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_of_Things).

Node.js for WinIoT

Announced recently: http://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2 ... -iot-core/

Should be useful to those who enjoy Java. Note there is a jvm java script engine built into Windows 10, which means it is also on WinIoT.

io.js is coming as well

I think the bigger question (to me at least) is whether the python test is using the same device driver as the other tests. E.g. if python on Raspbian is using GPIOmem as the Mono/GPIOMem example does, then it illustrates the driver performance impact. If so then a second choice of GPIO device drive...

The best supported library seems to be: http://www.airspayce.com/mikem/arduino/RadioHead/
(I looked into building my sensor network using those radios but opted for Xbee's instead)
You would need to adapt the SPI code to RPi/WinIoT by digging that out of some of the samples.

Re: Windows Universal App: Client - Server Communication

FYI, a Win32 console app has no gui. It is a command line based executable which, if it outputs text whilst running, does so to stdout and stderr. I don't think this will satisfy your requirement for some sort of UI later on in the project.

Using SSD or Hard drive to boot from?

Are there plans to support booting from something other than SD cards, e.g. as done with Raspbian where the first boot process is from SD, then continues on the attached sub drive?

Are there tools in the ADK to support this configuration?
