  • Dear Zeeshan

    Good news
    Do you have any plan for supporting WIFI,Bluetooth and touch in final release, if yes when it will be available or have any ETA for this features ?

  • Hello, Zeeshan

    I've posted an article on hackster about how to install Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 3B+.

    The link is: https://www.hackster.io/JiongShi/windows-10-iot-core-for-raspberry-pi-3-model-b-92b1a3

  • Hi,

    Thanks for the tutorial.

    I try this and it really works. But I can't connect the device to my local network. I can't see any ip in main screen. 

    Any ideas?

    Thanks and regards,

    Albert

  • Hello, Albert

    Do you mean onboard Ethernet port on Raspberry Pi 3 B+?

    That's strange. I use this port to connect with my local network, and it works fine for me.

    And my  Raspberry Pi 3 B+ is released by Element 14.

    Same problem here when attempting to download "RaspberryPi 3B+ Technical Preview Build 17661" with firefox. I used Internet Explorer instead.

  • Log in first. I had this same issue, and logging in fixed it.

  • I have managed to log in and proceeded with downloading and flashing the 17686 version but my booting process ends up at the "rainbow" screen without any errors. Anyone else is still struggling to boot up the 3B+ ?

  • @knoblauch

    how did you flash 17686 to the SD card ?

    have you tried a different SD card ?

  • actually, I have tried both - 3 different cards and both test builds now available - 17686 and the also the older one... that's why I quite don't understand what's wrong - rasbian and noobs started up right away... (on the same sd cards...)
    Monday, June 18, 2018 1:28 PM
  • oh how - I did use IOO Dashboard and flashed 17686 as custom image first, then I tried also signing in to dashboard (I have joined tester program) and then did go the "automatic way".

    both times, same result..

    Monday, June 18, 2018 3:18 PM
  • just to clarify - when I pulled out the sd card out of 3B+ and inserted it to 3B, it booted up immediately...

    in case of 3B+, I never see not a even a blink of greed LED light, only solit red LED light on.

    in case of 3B, the green led blinked and it started booting...

  • Dear knoblauch

    Actually, if you review the release notes for Raspberry Pi 3B+ with Windows 10 IoT Core here, you will find that "SD card activity LED is disabled" in section "Known issues in this build".

  • I have downloaded and installed 17661 to my Samsung Evo 32GB card, but it will still not boot on my B+.  I just get the rainbow screen of death.

    When i put the card in my B, it boots up and works fine.

    Raspbien is working on my B+ so i know the Pi actually works, but unfortunately i cannot get Windows IoT to run on it.

    my physical board says: Raspberry Pi Model B+ V1.2

    Friday, June 22, 2018 6:30 PM
  • are you 100% sure you are downloading the correct image? I always downloaded the one for rpi2/3 but not the custom one for 3B+ ...

    Thursday, June 28, 2018 1:19 PM
  • Does anyone know an expected release date with support for the onboard WiFi module?
    Thursday, July 5, 2018 12:20 PM
  • adding another vote to the list :) WiFi and touch are pretty important for my app.

    Decisions … decisions … well, at least Raspbian works :)

  • Adding a vote for WiFi and BT support.  Until then, I'll stick with the plain B model
    Sunday, July 22, 2018 8:10 PM
  • Thank you.. this is awesome!!.

    When will the wifi support be added?

  • Hi,

    I have my Raspberry Pi 3B+ running on Windows iOT 1766.
    My Raspberry doesn't found wifi. And when I use netsh command, it says that there is no wireless interfaces.

    Is there any way to have wifi on a Raspberry 3 B+ ?
    With a wifi key or something.

    Thank you very much
    Pierre


    Tuesday, September 4, 2018 12:34 PM
  • Hi,
    I saw on the Microsoft documentation, that wifi, or even dongle wifi are not yet supported on Raspberry 3 B+, even with the Windows iOT version 17751.

  • how to upload the file when it on image.iso and not ffu?
    Friday, November 23, 2018 11:47 AM
  • Mount the downloaded iso.  Inside is an MSI.  Run the MSI, and it will install the files, and tell you the directory in which the FFU exists.

  • Its now 8+ months since the RPI3B+ was released, and Microsoft still hasn't released an Official version of Windows 10 IoT core that supports the RPI3B+ ... Is Microsoft abandoning the RPi platform.

    Its disconcerting as my preference would be the Windows Platform, BUT the silence is deafening and I've been here before (with Windows Phone).  Can't wait nor invest in something that is being ignored - "fool me once..."

    Looks like I'll be learning Python on Raspian and Teflon....

    Yep, I feel your pain.  I'm finding the transition to Rasbian / Python rather fun - I'm blogging my adventures at http://AdventuresOnTheEdge.net should any other Windows developers feel forced down that path (as I do).

  • > ...a pre-release FFU for RPI3B+ without support for WIFI, Bluetooth, and touch... We would like to hear feedback from the community regarding this image.

    Despite the announcement I can control RPI3B+ using touch with 17661 build, or maybe it's some different touch (I have it connected to the device via USB cable from the monitor).

    Another problem I am seeing is that MediaElement is unable to play video even though video is coming in the form of 32-bit RGB surfaces, that is having no compression. There is a Media Foundation error involved suggesting that DXGI subsystem is not available and software rendering is not available either (MF_MEDIA_ENGINE_ERR_DECODE, MF_E_DXGI_DEVICE_NOT_INITIALIZED). All in all, media element can't display anything and shows "Error: Video could not be decoded" message.

    Microsoft will invest $5 billion in IoT

    ....and v17763 that downloads on a Pi3B+ won't even boot.  C'mon guys, you've got the budget to fix this apparently..

  • Nobody said Microsoft would invest any of that money into IoT on hobby boards. The Raspberry Pi and *duinos are in many ways poorly suited to use outside of a classroom. 

    • There's no power management for the board.
    • There's no power management system for slave devices.
    • There's no bus.
    • There's no watchdog.

    SPI is a bus protocol but there's no predefined prefabricated physical bus architecture. A well designed prototyping system can remap peripheral pins to different bus lines using nothing but jumpers. Every Arduino shield I've ever seen has stackable headers that assume the shield will have exclusive use of COM1. You can fix this with wire but you can't stack the shields. For legacy compatibility you solve this on the connectors of a backplane board serving as a bus. This also simplifies mounting because the backplane mounts to the case and the boards mount to the backplane.

    One can certainly add all these things … if one already knows that they are necessary

  • It's clear that they see this as a hobbyist arena. 
    Wednesday, February 6, 2019 4:45 AM
  • Could somebody please provide a confirmation on whether other than Raspberry boards mentioned in QuickStart (that is, DragonBoard 410c or MinnowBoard Turbot) are capable to play video in MediaElement? That is, I suppose, the image have respective boards for video hardware, with hardware acceleration for decoding or software rendered, just at least working without triggering a failure. 

    For a more complete Windows 10 IoT Core experience, please use a DragonBoard, Up2 Board or NXP device.

    That is, does this include include MediaElement video delivery?

    And as soon as it's a RBP3+ topic, perhaps MSFT could shed some light on whether it is expected that a new build is released any time soon?

  • More than 9 months to support RPi3B+ WiFi, Bluetooth and Touch People make babies faster...

    https://blogs.microsoft.com/iot/2018/04/04/microsoft-will-invest-5-billion-in-iot-heres-why/

    Just have to consider if 150 box is either not enough to be approved by MS Accountants or too much...

    Will try to see what can be done but is already dubious that my time investment worth's it.
