Hi,

although the application is not provisioned for arm64 architecture by Microsoft, it can still be added to the product if needed.

However the dashboard is still accessible from web browser over http so you might not necessarily need the app. The IP address for accessing the page can be read on the blue info screen you have posted.

 

How to add the app to custom project:

  1. Build and import BSP into “IoT ADK AddonKit” as described “Building Windows 10 IoT Core for NXP i.MX” chapter of i.MX_Win10_User's_Guide.pdf .
  2. Build the Windows 10 IoT Core Default App for arm64
    1. For the build I would recommend to use release configuration to avoid need of debugging libs
    2. APPX could be created from the right click on project menu that pops up in Visual Studio by selecting “store->Create App Package”
  3. Provision the imported BSP with created APPX package by “Add-IoTAppxPackage path_to.appx fga app_name_to_be_displayed” command.
    1. Note the “fga” argument specifies application to run in foreground.
    2. The command is available at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/iot/deploy-your-app-with-a-standard-bo...
  4. Create test ffu and create new SD card. You can continue following the https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/iot/deploy-your-app-with-a-standard-bo....

I understood your advice.
I have a question.
Can I use the following features when running as a custom application?
Required features are I2C, Ethernet, SPI, and UART.

Yes, of course. Applications can access I2C, SPI and UART and I see you have the notice about "internet access" on the screen too. To get the idea about features I would recommend checking GitHub - microsoft/Windows-iotcore-samples: Official code samples repository for Windows 10 Internet...  and the documentation available from Microsoft.

You can find some graphical applications in the Samples directory. To see the application running on the development board you can build it by Visual Studio and then launch debugging session to upload and execute it (You will need the ip address available on the blue screen you have posted.). Other option is to create proper appx package as mentioned in previous post.

hi, Frantisek Prochaska

  1. “Building Windows 10 IoT Core for NXP i.MX” chapter of i.MX_Win10_User's_Guide.pdf  chapter 10.1 ~ 10.1.3.1

I created FFU file

build.jpg

I used the iot dashboard to put the FFU file on the SD card.

However, the screen below appears the same.

What did I miss?

i tried more..

chapter 10.1.4 Building the FFU with the IoT ADK AddonKit  

I refer to the page below and got an error in the Build Packages item in progress.

Does the keyboard and mouse work in the above blue screen capture?

That's unfortunate. I will look more into this problem tomorrow.

- U-boot running on i.MX 8MM I am running here reports the following, having USB flash disk connected to the port marked as "J301 PORT1" of the 8MMINI-BB board and the NXP power adapter to the other USB port. And mouse works no matter if it's connected or disconnected during boot.

U-boot console snippet:

"

starting USB...
USB0:   USB EHCI 1.00
USB1:   Port not available.
scanning bus 0 for devices... 2 USB Device(s) found

"

Could you provide more info about your system you are using?

- whether you use the FFU provided by NXP or custom built

- do you still use the i.MX 8M Mini board? (U-boot I am using reports the following line "CPU:   Freescale i.MX8MMQ rev1.0" during boot.)

- maybe we can check whole console output of your U-boot

Thank you!

I thank you for your reply.

I am using MCIMX8M-EVKB Board on Win10 IoT Core.
I downloaded the custom .ffu and NXP .ffu to mSD and used the same.
(I know that eMMC Booting is not supported.)
However, it works fine when eMMC Android booting.

I've tested several keyboard and mouse, but they're not works too.

I downloaded the image from the path below.

Ok, don't mind my previous reply, it doesn't apply to your board. I was a little confused by the board name in tittle of the question.

I don't have the MCIMX8M-EVK to try if the mouse works for me, however you can try the following:

  1. The workaround for USB Type-C mentioned in release notes:
    • "USB cable must be plugged before UBOOT is running."
  2. Check the "SCH-..... REV .." label on bottom of your board.
    • According to release notes only the board with "SCH-29615 REV B4" is able to run Windows 10 IOT Core.

Thank you for your reply.

My board is SCH-38820 REV A1(MCIMX8M-EVKB) and it doesn't work yet?

Hi An,

the error you have got looks strange to me. I would try to do two things here:

  1. Check that you have installed of Windows10_IoTCore_Packages from iso file for arm64. However I am sure you have it because Visual Studio builds everything correctly.
    • I have the following files on my disk:pastedImage_1.png
      • There are no *.wm.xml files inside arm64 directory on my machine though so I believe the second idea will work
  2. Revert iot-adk-addonkit to commit revision 52fa36327498bf1394970ef7572142b8a69ec304
    1. Open git shell inside iot-adk-addonkit directory.
    2. Execute git reset --hard 52fa36327498bf1394970ef7572142b8a69ec304
    3. Try to redo the Lab 1a: Create a basic image | Microsoft Docs
      • I am a little curious here: Do you add anything besides the BSP and possibly Import-IoTOEMPackage Recovery.* ?
    4. If New-IoTCabPackage All step succeeds you can continue adding your appx, but it's better to finish the Lab 1a just to be sure. And return after the ffu is created successfully.
      • Add-IoTAppxPackage path_to.appx fga app_name_to_be_displayed
    5. Create product and assemble custom ffu.
    6. Put ffu on SD card

Hi,

64-bit platform does not have the default application included yet.

Default application doc.

Windows 10 IoT Core Default App - Windows IoT | Microsoft Docs 

Default application is open source and you should be able to build it in VS for 64-bit platform.
