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 ...

The following shows up in the event log for me when the app spins up and crashes. This is after a full clean install of Win10 x64 and VS 2015 RC then WindowsDeveloperProgramForIoT.

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) ...
