Re: Display works on Raspbian Jessie, but not on W10 IOT?

You will probably have to ask the someone from the Raspberry Pi Foundation as they produce the hardware and, it what you say is true, then the change has broken the MS interface to the GPU. IoT relies on the GPU and its firmware/software to work. We will have to wait for MS and the Pi team to talk o...

Re: WebSockets in Windows 10

REST servers in UWP or Win32 are http underneath and carry streams of any arbitrary protocol as their body
Which language you use is dependent on skills and requirements

Re: Display works on Raspbian Jessie, but not on W10 IOT?

I just followed the steps on the IOT site and FAQ to write the sd card in a PC. That is the only supported way to create an image.

Followed the steps to install the screen likewise. Add hardware. Power on and bingo

Re: Universal Apps on Windows 10 IOT

Sorry. The FAQ was a lot of work.

Basically you can do almost everything you can think of on the desktop. In IoT UWP or Win32.

Provided you start from fresh or import Widows 8 and above code sources into a new project.

Re: WebSockets in Windows 10

To do what? Run a web server? Try the blinky web server example. Run some other protocol. Use one of the socket classes available.

IN all UWP languages.

Just the multi thread web server classes are not there AFIK

You need

Re: WebSockets in Windows 10

Ah I think I see the confusion. True there are no web sockets as a server. There are sockets which you can use to make one though. You just don't have access to the higher libraries that is all because those are in the Desktop sku.

Re: Serial port support for the raspi?

I don't have that problem. See Serial Example on GitHub for code to drive the Serial tx/rx. You need to go deep in the code to find simple lines to re-use. And take a look at the FAQ, It already has answers to some of your questions, If you need more help I'll try and add more

Re: Powering RPi and 12v device with single power cable

There is a wide variety of hardware solutions to problems that are outlined in the Linux notes. They all apply to MS 10 IoT. Same hardware, same outcomes (now). The GPU code itself appears little changed from Linux. Just the MS code needing to catch up. Getting there in record time for MS. And all o...

Ask Realtek or their clone when they are going to get round to doing it. They are the ones not doing the work but taking the cash, not MS

Re: Direct Memory Mapped GPIO driver

Because it is the linker that mostly does that step. Sometimes it creates stubs that are only tripped over later in execution. There is much more than just the compiler going on here.
