  • Windows IoT Core is a UWP centric OS and UWP apps are its primary app type, .NET Framework is not supported

    Writing apps part of the documentation provides more information

  • Technically, .NET Framework (C#) is supported, but it depends on the type of application. You can have headless, which can be developed any supported language or write a UWP application, which is similar to the older WPF.

    Windows Form applications are not supported in Windows 10 IoT Core.

  • .NET Framework requires a 32 or 64 bit OS (.NET Framework system requirements)

    Windows IoT Core and Universal Windows Platform is based on .NET Core (.NET Standard)
