A Windows 10 UWP app can be built upon the Remote-Wiring library such that the app can interact with an Arduino device running Firmata. An app, similar to the Windows Remote Arduino “Blinky” example, but with feature additions, is developed. It performs GPIO (output AND input) as well as some analog IO. . This app is functionally the same as Windows 8.1 version in the previous blog in this series. This blog works through the same material (ie repeats much of it) as the previous blog but from the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) context rather Windows 8.1 Universal App context. The target for the app is Win 10 desktop, Win 10 phone and Raspberry PI2 (running Win 10 IoT). The latter target is a "work-in-progress though".This blog can be read without reference to the previous blog.

A Windows 8.1 Universal app can be built upon the Remote-Wiring library such that the app can interact with an Arduino device running Firmata. An app similar to the Windows Remote Arduino “Blinky” example, but with feature additions, is developed. It performs GPIO (output AND input) as well as some analog IO. The app runs on a Win 8.1 desktop, phone and RT Surface. The UI has some extra XAML “bells and whistles”.
This blog is a Tutorial on how to implement Win 10 IoT Universal Apps that make use of Raspberry PI 2 (RPI2) General Purpose Input Output (GPIO) pins. This covers:
The interrupt (event driven) version addresses the InvokeRequired pattern in the XAML context. (Controls can't be updated directly from another thread).

An old gem that has stood the test of time. This implements the key functionality of s stream driver project (as OS subprojects with test apps) for Windows Embedded Compact and CE. Time for an major update:
Versions 3.0 and 3.5 were Standard Editions. When a driver project was generated, there were a lot of place holders as comments (what is needed to be done) in the code that implement things such as shared memory, registry access, counting driver instances, as well as driver context and open context buffers etc. This Professional Version fully implements all of those features.
I was an early adopter of Win 10 IoT with Raspberry PI 2 (RPI2) as well as Windows Remote Arduino. Whilst I was able to use my Windows 8.1 phone to control an Arduino device as per the latter technology, I did have some problems with some fine detail with the RPI2 technology. I have now had a second stab at Win 10 IoT with RPI2 with success. This blog discusses these issues.
