I'm testing Raspberry Pi 3(B) with Windows IoT Core to see if I can port one of the current apps made on WinForms to Windows Universal Platform.
All is looking good and promising, however, I'm currently facing issues with getting my current USB to RS232 adapters to work. I would need 1 to 3 of those to be functioning on a single RPi device, so USB to RS232 is the best option.
Currently I have Prolific USB to RS232 adapters, which have drivers for pretty much all OSes, but Windows IoT. These adapters are being seen by Windows IoT, but missing the drivers.
After I've done my research online, I understood as of now, that I have these 3 options available?
- Waiting till Startech will realease drivers for Windows IoT
- Using their drivers for Windows x86/x64 to build Universal driver myself (would it really work thought?)
- Trying to find some alternative USB to RS232 adapter with Silicon Labs chip that would be supported out of the box (could not find one yet)
