Windows 10 for IoT filename?

Wed Dec 06, 2017 10:15 pm

Hello,
I just downloaded the Windows 10 for IoT .iso file from the official website (https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/w ... /downloads).
I noticed that the filename was:
16299.15.170928-1534.rs3_release_amd64fre_IOTCORE_RPi.iso

I was just curious why, since the filename also includes RPi, and Pi has Arm chipset architecture, not AMD.
Does anyone know why the file may be named this way?

Thanks! :D

AMD64 is another name for x86-64 CPU Architecture, your Windows Machine has this CPU Architecture:

My only "PC" is an Asus ChromeBit running ChromeOS, cloudcentric at its best !
Rockchip Quad-Core RK3288C SoC as used in ASUS Chromebook C201 & Chromebook Flip C100PA as well as the Tinker SBC.

because in that iso file there is an installer package that is made for windows 10 amd64.
you need a windows 10 desktop amd64 PC to be able to install that installer package.
and after that installation on an amd64 PC you finally can flash your arm RPi...
{ I only give negative feedback }
RPi Model B (rev1, 256MB) & B (rev2, 512MB) & B+, RPi2B (1GB), 64GB microSDXC1 class 10, HDMI 1920x1080, keyboard-mouse-combo (wireless), PiCamera, ethernet-cable, 5V/1.2A power supply, Wifi dongle (rt5370)
