Windows IoT


Many Windows 10 IoT samples fail to compile in Visual Studio 2015 Community edition


It hurts that most IoT samples depend on hardware yet I have not found one shred if Raspberry Pi hardware configuration for the samples. Further, attempts to compile result in numerous errors, some because of "using System;" directives. See VS
screen shot.
Hi gnovis,
Unfortunately I can not make out your screen shot. The IoT samples are on GITHUB and should have complete instructions accessible through
https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot/win10/StartCoding.htm. If you feel there is an item missing from any sample you can suggest edits to both the sample documentation and the code itself on GITHUB.
Note that each sample also explains which build of the OS it was tested against. If you are targeting a pre-release build from Windows Insiders you will want to set your expectations appropriately as these are not expected to have the same quality
as a release build.
Sincerely,
IoTGirl
clean and rebuild the solution where you see those issues
Hi gnovis
When I've seen this volume of errors from a new project, I've found that right clicking on the VS solution and selecting "Restore NuGet Packages" solves the issue for me.
Hope this helps

Hi gnovis,
Both CyberH0me & Jeremy have great advice for you. In any project it is easy for files and Nuget packages to get out of date.

Hi IoTGirl,
When I click the link you provided in your reply I get 'Resource not Found".
Sincerely,

#gnovis delete the . from the link...
Wow, great Jeremy,
But in my version of VS 2015, right-clicking lists "Manage NuGet Packages". That led to a screen that said I needed one update, which I installed. The project, PotentiometerSensor, compiled and deployed just fine. It ran only to display an error
(which means it did run) - I did not chose the ADC chip. With no hardware documentation I did not add any hardware to my Raspberry Pi 3 but thanks to your tip, I can build now.
The curious thing is that when my R-Pi kit arrived, I downloaded and installed all the VS tools that day. I was able to compile and run a sample amp: red LED, green LED, left PB, right PB for which I deduced the hardware. It ran fine. The next day my VS
dev environment was out of date. ???
At least now I know what to do when the happens.
Now to hunt for W10-IoT sample project hardware information.
By the way, I've had no luck finding any R-Pi / W10-IoT programming reference. You know, a programmer's manual listing functions and how they work.
Sincerely,
George
Hi IoTGirl,
I started using Microsoft software development tools professionally in the early 1980s (well before Windows in 1985). I'm aware that things change, but not daily. IoT must be cutting edge stuff.
As long as I know what steps to take, I can muddle thru it.
Thanks,
George
Hi IoTGirl,
Sorry to be such a pain but this is fun stuff...
Even though your link was broke, turns out I have been all over the MS IoT web pages and have many of them bookmarked already. After getting these several replies here and building the PotSensor project successfully, I went back and looked at MS IoT pages
and Googled and even Bing. The GutHub Zip referred to offers software for over 60 IoT projects but no hardware docs, no fritzing, nada that I could find.
Please help.
In my search for schematics, parts lists, anything, I did discover information about Windows Remote Arduino library. I have built a lot of Arduino and Netduino projects. Looks like I can use the MS IoT platform with them.
But what I really want help with is hardware that goes with the 60+ GitHub software samples.
Thanks,
George
Hi George,
There are basically 2 tracks for IoT Core; Release and Pre-release. If you stick with the 10586 release the tools should all stay in sync pretty much. If you join Windows Insiders, you are in the wilds of non-release ready builds. Things are
added, broken, fixed, rebroken, refixed and eventually will be released but don't expect ready for prime time on this track. Right now these builds are in the 143XX range and there are some interesting interactions for sure. Definitely requires
muddling skills :)
As a side trip, you might want to do some research into
NuGet & Github. These are independent of IoT Core itself but are key in providing access, updates & sample code.
PS: BTW, I may not have been coding in the 80's but I have written some mean COBOL & ADA in my time. Does that get me any street cred? :)
Sincerely,
IoTGirl

i am not sure what help you need but i would start here
windowsondevices.com points you to many information and samples around Windows IoT, for example -> Develop -> Docs and samples or -> Explore -> Learn about Windows 10 IoT Core
for specific questions don't hesitate to ask the forum
