Raspberry Pi 2 with 7″ Touchscreen Display running Windows 10 IoT Core

I while ago I bought myself a Raspberry Pi 2 to play around with. I wanted it to run on Windows 10 IoT Core. That worked fine, with a display connected to HDMI. When the official Raspberry Pi 7″ Tochscreen Display came out I wanted to buy one immediately, but I was to late. The first batch was sold out :-). So I waited for the next batch and bought one.

I directly downloaded the latest version of Windows 10 IoT Core (build 10556), but the screen was not working. Using HDMI it was working…Argh. First I thought maybe the display is not properly connected, but when I tried Raspian, it work fine (even with touch).

I’ve let it rest for a while and today I picked it up again and found a forum post, stating that build 10556, wil not work with a v1.1 of the Rasberry Pi Display, but it will work with the latest preview build 14262. SoĀ assuming that I have a v1.1 of the display, I downloaded the preview version and yes, it’s working! Even with touch šŸ™‚

Now the development can begin.
