Re: App runs from Visual Studio, but crashes when run direct

Yeah, I figured it out - had to use iotstartup. I've edited my initial post so that it helps others who might have the same question.

Thanks for responding :)

Re: App runs from Visual Studio, but crashes when run direct

Oh, and I'm running the latest versions of 10 IoT (10.0.10586) and the matching SDK on my Windows 10 Desktop

App runs from Visual Studio, but crashes when run direct

Edit - Figured it out. It's a Background Application, and I needed to use iotstartup to set it up. Instructions here http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=533884&clcid=0x409 Having an odd issue that I can't figure out. I built a small app, just a modified blinky light app. I can run it from Visual...

Re: Windows 10 IoT now supports WiFi & Bluetooth. Anyone try

Yeah - my edimax adapter isn't working. :(

I ordered an official one too. Sigh - bad Microsoft, but I can understand them focusing on the Windows 10 launch. And it's worth it for developing with Visual Studio.

Windows 10 IoT now supports WiFi & Bluetooth. Anyone try it?

Hi, I'm at work right now so can't download it, but the new version of Windows 10 IoT apparently has WiFi and Bluetooth support + a bunch of other improvements. Has anyone tried downloading it yet? Lack of WiFi was holding me back because it wasn't possible to constantly plug an ethernet cable at my...

Re: Setup without Windows 10 PC

I can confirm that Visual Studio 2015 RC installed on Windows 8.1 Pro is able to deploy apps to the Raspberry Pi. I got Blinky and a couple of the others working. To install Windows IoT to the Pi on Windows 8.1, you can use the method posted here. I can confirm this works as well. https://www.raspbe...

Re: Deploying simple projects takes a long time (2 min+)?

That's the sample project - I haven't touched anything, just copied the code and built it. I guess .Net just takes that much? I'm not an expert on .Net, perhaps someone with more experience can chime in?

Tip: You can browse C$ via a network share

Once you have your Pi talking to your Windows machine, you can browse the contents of the SD Card by opening it via Windows Explorer. Just type \\<IP-Address> in the Run prompt. Use IP\Administrator and the password you set to log in. The projects you deploy live in \\<IP-Address>\c$\USERS\DefaultAc...

Deploying simple projects takes a long time (2 min+)?

Hi, I'm building the sample projects (Blinky, Blinkly Headless etc), and I have a question about deploy times. It takes more than 3 min to deploy these simple projects - is this normal? The build is very quick, but then it goes into Deploy.. ------ Deploy started: Project: BlinkyWebService, Configur...

Re: WindowsIoTCoreWatcher

There's a workaround that Ed Dore posted on the IOT Connect forums. There's one typo in his post, which I've corrected below. (Should be corflags, not coreflags).

Re: How does GPIO input detect True?

I figured it out.. It was user error, of course. I'm using a new breadboard, and wasn't aware that the board rails don't go all the way down. so my resistor wasn't actually connected to the GPIO pin to set it as low!

How does GPIO input detect True?

Hi, I'm just learning how to use the Pi. I set up a very simple circuit to test the GPIO input. Algorithm: 1. If switch is on -> Turn green LED on & red LED off 2. If switch is off -> Turn red LED on & green LED off 3. Loop 10 times I'm using the circuit described here: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/proje...
