AppInstall can be used to install Appx packages on an IoT-Core device This blog covers an updated version of the toolkit for use on the latest Winsider IoT-Core builds.
The Week or Two That Was
DAVID JONES V1.1
Some of the issues I have been looking at over the last week or so.
In the previous two blogs I discussed using the Web Portal running on a Windows 10 Phone to remotely or in-phone install and Universal Windows Platform app. In this blog I discuss options for install UWP app packages on Windows 10 IoT devices. This is a work in progress as I have not had success some of these methodologies.
You can now remotely install an app in a simple way. No need for Windows 10 SDK to get winappdeploycmd, You can use Device Manager in a browser locally or on the phone to do it. Here's how. The previous blog covered the basics about app packages, deployment and setting up for sideloading. This blog covers remote app installation and in phone app installation using Device Manager running in a browser.

An issue has arisen with the last two Fast Track Windows 10 Mobile OS versions this week. You can’t deploy apps from Visual Studio to phones with those versions. Jump off Fast Track for now to Slow Track or “slower”. If you have one of these versions on your phone there isn’t a simple way to unwind. The problem as I see it is one of connectivity and sounds a bit like the issue we had last November with IoT-Core.
My next attempt is to get Blinky to work as part of an Android app. I found some relevant code but my device fell over so I can’t test it yet. Here is the code thus far.
This completes getting Blinky running as a shell script on a Dragonboard 410c
In this activity we will use the ADB command line and shell running on the development system, to directly manipulate the Dragonboard 410c GPIO pins. A version of "Blinky" will be implemented that periodically flashes a LED of the target. A second version will turn the LED on/off under control of a press button. The "app" will run as batch file of ADB commands on the dev machine remotely controlling Dragonboard. A Linux shell script running on the target will also be used that encapsulates the batched ADB commands..
In this exercise we will use Android Studio to create a single screen Android UI app that will access the sensor class to get the number of established sensors on a device. Don’t worry if you don’t have any sensors, It’s just that its more interesting than doing yet another “Hello World”. My system didn’t have any sensors enabled.
