WindowsIoTCoreWatcher

Sat May 02, 2015 3:07 pm

Hi,

is "WindowsIoTCoreWatcher.exe" working for You? When I click it it seems to be starting up but nothing ever happens ...
Of course with just on "Pi on Windows" it's not yet vital but still ...

I have same problem.
And there is a bug filed on MS Feedback Center that is worth upvoting: https://connect.microsoft.com/windowsem ... ls/1295993

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). Worked for me.

original source - https://connect.microsoft.com/windowsem ... ls/1295993

Launch the "Developer Command Prompt for VS2015" as Administrator
change the working directory over to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft IoT"

sn -Vr WindowsIoTCoreWatcher.exe
corflags WindowsIoTCoreWatcher.exe /32BIT+ /FORCE

The first command (sn.exe) tells windows to skip strongname verification of the binary
The second command forces the application to run as a 32bit application

I'm guessing someone isn't testing this stuff on a 64bit OS :-S

The "Galileo Watcher" is detecting the Pi as well (Windows 7) ...
