Possible to run a Windows based executable file on Win 10 Core IoT?

Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:46 pm

Hi,

Being new at this, I have no clue as to where to go from here. I have sorted out how to get both Windows Core IoT and Raspbian, running on two separate Micro SD Cards.

But, I need to get an executable file to run, if possible.

Can anyone assist me in how to possibly do that?

Thanks,
AoG

No. W10 IOT will not run any standard desktop Windows files.
Please read the sticky topics at the top of this forum.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.

I did read the sticky post, singular. It was the one that stated to read before posting in this forum. :roll:

Did I fail to mention I am new to all of this? No, I guess I didn't: :roll:

My reply was not meant to be harsh but to merely point you to information about what Win10 IOT is.... and what it is not.......
Win IOT is not really a beginners platform. Beginners should probably start with the recommended Raspbian OS.
Sorry if you were offended.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.

There are TWO stickies at the top of this forum about WIN10IOT
STICKY: Windows 10 Core IoT FAQ (Unofficial)
and
STICKY: What Windows 10 for IoT is, and is not!
read them both, and you should realise that running a windows based executable is NOT possible on WIN10IOT

I have both operating on separate Micro SD cards, Raspian and IoT. I just need help sorting out if I can run an executable file on the RPi. Obviously, you have confirmed that IoT will not. So, can you please tell me how I may do that in Raspbian? (Or, maybe I should start a topic in a more appropriate forum, so as not to be off topic here?)

I'm sorry to tell you but There is no way at all to run a windows executable acceptably on a PI,
well you could run an x86 emulator, and run WINE on top of that, but that really isn't practical.

the "latest" windows software that runs emulated at somewhat reasonable speed is windows95, but it takes half an hour to boot it.
There is commercial x86 emulator software with which you can run Debian x86 on a PI, (very slowly), and it runs WINE, and can start *some* windows apps, but not many, very slowly. if you are desperate enough.

you will be MUCH better off running programs compiled for Raspbian Linux (Raspbian runs ARM code).

No it wasn't sorted, because you talked about reading a SINGLE sticky....

That wasn't one of the stickies I was talking about, you were talking about the announcement.


but good luck with your quest. :D

If you mention what executable you wish to use and why, we may be able to suggest alternatives

Example:
You: I want Microsoft Word so I can edit my .doc file on my Pi

Us: Open the file using Notepad++

Well, at this point, I am willing to try anything. It doesn't really matter how long it takes to boot. Once it is up and running, it would continue to run, day in and day out. All I need it to do, is to run a single (Linux) executable file, a cryptocurrency wallet. The wallet is for a POS coin, for staking coins. The application only has to be connected to the network in order to perform this function. The blockchain does the rest.

I want to remove the (windows) wallet application / software from my desktop. The RPi2 would take only a few resources, by comparison, to run continuously.

If I cannot get the RPi2 to work, I will just buy a laptop to serve this function, I suppose.

That, I did. I read the single sticky that stated to "read prior to posting in this forum". Perhaps, you being a moderator, may consider renaming the other sticky threads to read similarly. Sound like a plan? Maybe? Maybe not? Up to you, sir.

Reading all the stickies in a thread before starting to post, is in itself good practice, I don't think that it would help to stress that fact, and anyway I cannot enforce people to read anything before posting here, I can only hope they do.

also it was pointed out to you that reading those stickies would be beneficial to you:
No. W10 IOT will not run any standard desktop Windows files.

Thats not a windows executable at all, and can probably be installed from a Raspbian repository with

Code: Select all

apt-get install "linux application name"

Sorry. I also have a windows version of the file, that I wanted to use if a Windows O/S was possible to be run on the RPi.
