  1. Hardware and software (1 on N)
  2. Boot from SD card in the device (2 of N)
  3. Hello World mode! (3 of N)
  4. Visual Studio deployment process and Web Management app (4 on N)
  5. Hello Blinky !!! (5 on N)
  6. Some admin tasks, like change password and change name (6 on N)
  7. List of connected devices in the Raspberry Pi 2 (7 on N)
  8. Deploy an app using the deploy package (8 on N)

I’ve been very busy during the past days, so I have not had time to update some of the interesting new features presented on Build. So today I’ll go with one of my personal favorites: Windows 10 and Raspberry Pi 2.

First the disclaimer: keep in mind that the version of Windows that we will use on the device is not the same you have on your laptop, so keep your expectations lower

So let’s start, the first thing you need is to have installed Windows 10 Insider Preview, i.e. build 10074 or higher


The next step is to download the bits from Connect.


If not these discharged in the program, you can request access athttps://connect.microsoft.com/windowsembeddedIoT/

Another important detail is to have the hardware! In the case of the Raspberry Pi 2, we need

-a feed 5V micro USB. If we are not going to use any USB port on the device, with 2V is sufficient, although it is never the case

-a 8GB micro SD. More and more large is the image down

-a network cable

-an HDMI cable and a monitor to project output. This is optional, but I recommend it

If you don’t have all this separately, this offer from amazon is fine (link)


As you can see in the image, I also recommend a starter kit like the Grove. You save long cord and welder and allows you to prototype quickly in plug and play mode.

OK, with all the prerequisites that are ready the next thing we need to do is install Windows Developer Program for IoT .


At the end of the installation we will see that we have a watcher app to see all the devices that are in our network with Windows 10 Embedded.


In the next post I will comment on as download the image to the SD card and how to put it on the Raspberry. And obviously some source code… 😀
