I have passed on the many many UWP requests on the forum but not much action has been taken yet, so I suggest everyone flood this thread with your needs and project ideas using UWP, so I can take it to the rest of the guys and show them it is very necessary that the LP support this.

Please also answer:
What is your background?
Why do you want a UWP application?

Please be as detailed as possible.

As always, please keep it respectful and family-friendly ;)
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

I'm not familiar (yet) with UWP so for me some small tutorials would be nice.

Some basic tutorials (with examples for download) on how to use the GPIO pins connected to the Atom.

Also I need support on using the Arduino I/O from windows.

I prefer everything in C(++) and not C#

And how to use these 3pin connectors?

For me, the single most important point about UWP support was that was a large part of the sales literature. Both on the Kickstarter site and until recently all the code samples were for UWP projects which never worked on the shipped hardware. For me it was a deal breaker and purchased the lp & full windows and not a pi3 with windows IOT core.
I suspect there are others of the same opinion.

Definitely agree with above, I bought LP for UWP support. How to you expect someone to install visual studio on such a tiny device. What does is take to get LP on this page? https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/w ... GetStarted#

Here is a list of projects, https://www.hackster.io/windows-10-iot-core.

Any help i can provide I am willing to do so.

I have a Comp Sci background and hope to be able to publish a UWP app over TCP/IP that connects to the Arduino serial communication.

I am also interested in this, or at least a tutorial on getting the MinnowBoard MAX version running on the x64 LattePanda.

I am studying Software Engineering at University right now and would like to create software for UWP on LattePanda

I would very intrested in this, it would make it much easier to test out arduino outputs and inputs

An easy to use interface would be quite nice.
I fiddled around with the arduino.cs library you provided and could get my project to work (a cooling fan control) - unfortunately not in all the details I need.

Two GPIO 'Hello World' tutorials, so that we can easily understand how the LattePanda implementation relates to the Intel and Arduino GPIOs

Both should be the quintessential "Blinky" project that is offered by all IoT platforms, but one for the Arduino GPIOs, and the other for the Intel GPIOs:

For the Arduino GPIOs:

- a UWP program that talks to the onboard Arduino that has a LED (and serial resistor) attached to the inbuilt Arduino GPIOs.
- Pressing a button on the UWP UI causes the LED to flash.
- Include the sketch for the Arduino

For the Intel GPIOs:

- a UWP program that talks to the Intel GPIOs that have a LED (and serial resistor) attached to the inbuilt Intel GPIOs.
- Pressing a button on the UWP UI causes the LED to flash.

StandardFirmata.ino running on the arduino part of LP and a console program with Arduino.cs class does the job nicely.
But when it comes to UWP App developped with Windows-Remote-Arduino Nuget Package talking thru USB to the Arduino part with FirmataStandard running, i'm stuck in the USB connection.
The same App running on my laptop and talking thru USB connection to Arduino 101 is working just fine.

The microsoft app Windows Remote Arduino Experience doesnt work neither. Same USB connection problem, but works fine on laptop and Arduino 101.

Any help ?
Do I miss something with USB connection ?
