Trying to run a Visual Studio app on my Raspberry Pi with .net framework. Help?

Fri Jul 19, 2019 12:00 am

(Brought my question here due to the fact that everyone on Stack Overflow is a snooty high horse rider)

I'm writing a voice assistant app in Visual Studio. It's using .net framework (which I only kinda understand). From what I gather, .net framework is only for windows. I was wondering...

Could I install raspian to my Pi 3, and then create a virtual machine running Windows XP? Would this run poorly on the pi3?
I'm not sure how else I could get the Pi to support the program, though im open to suggestions!

Thanks! :D

Welcome to the forum.

Forget emulation - by the time you emulate the instruction set and then Windows you can fall asleep quicker :lol:

Have a look at https://www.mono-project.com/ if you must use .NET (try Python - it’s worth the work).
Need Pi spray - these things are breeding in my house...
