Windows IOT 10 10.0.17134.1 Serial Port problem

Mon Aug 20, 2018 11:29 am

Hi
Has anyone else found that they cant access the serial port on the raspberry Pi3 using the IOT core version 10.0.17134.1.
I have used a previous version (didn't keep a record!) and all worked ok.
Now , although I can obtain a list of serial ports using :-
string aqs = SerialDevice.GetDeviceSelector();
var dis = await DeviceInformation.FindAllAsync(aqs);
// status.Text = "Select a device and connect";
for (int i = 0; i < dis.Count; i++)
{
listOfDevices.Add(dis);
} :

Trying to create an instance of a serial port using this:-

SerialDevice serialPort = null;
serialPort = await SerialDevice.FromIdAsync(listOfDevices[0].Id );

returns a null serial port.

Unfortunately I do not have the previous version and I cant find the previous versions on the web site either!
I have contacted Microsoft and am awaiting a call with them soon.

So two questions if I may:-

1 Has anyone else experienced the same problem.

2. Does anyone else know where I can get previous versions from.

I will keep you up to date with the progress from Microsoft.

Thanks for your help

Regards

Mark

Just downloaded both previews without problems.
You don't need a more stable website, but a better internet connection / ISP / downloader...

You need to be signed in with your Microsoft Account, a Hotmail/Outlook one should suffice.....

Hi All
Just to close this post as I have solved my original problem.
It turned out to be as simple as enabling the Serial Device in the Package.appxmanifext.xml.
I added :-
<Capabilities>
<DeviceCapability Name="serialcommunication">
<Device Id="any">
<Function Type="name:serialPort" />
</Device>
</DeviceCapability>
</Capabilities>

I have also managed to join the Insider program and download the test version of IOT10 10.0.17733.1000.

Thankyou for your help

Regards

Mark.

Will definitely try and test this one on my PC. I have the same issue with my Windows 10 got from go2top.
Thank you for sharing this topic. It's very useful and helpful to me.
