.NET Core and UWP support status

Postby Niels9001 » Thu Aug 22, 2019 4:49 am

Hi Phidget community,

I was wondering what the current status (and if there's any documentation) around Phidgets support for the Universal Windows Platform.

Announcements during Microsoft's Build 2019 developer conference makes clear that UWP is here to stay. Having Phidgets support would be great. I saw that there were some previous topics around this last year, but I wanted to check where we are with this and respark the conversation!

Regards,
Niels

UWP support is something we are looking into, but it's currently not possible because of USB permissions issues imposed my Microsoft.

Thanks for the update, Patrick. What kind of limitations?

Are you talking to them directly about these limitations? I might be able to hook you up with the right people to talk to.

Phidgets are USB HID class, and UWP doesn't allow directly opening/interacting with HID devices. We will likely have to switch the USB stack away from HID to get things working in UWP.
