Update 2015-08-29:

The public release is now available from MS-IoT GitHub.

During the 2015 BUILD conference, Microsoft announced the release of images Windows IoT for Raspberry Pi 2. In order to obtain these images:

  1. log into the Windows Connect website
  2. join the 'Windows Embedded Pre-Release Programs'
  3. Accept the user license agreements

From there you'll be able to access the Downloads section for Windows IoT.

To install Windows IoT follow these instructions.

  • Have you been able to Download an image for the Raspi from there? I can Filter for Builds, Documents and "All", but nothing will display any downloadable things. Commented May 3, 2015 at 8:17

    @FragmentationNeeded in order to view the downloads, you HAVE to login into the connect website, join the program and accept the license agreements. otherwise nothing will show. Commented May 3, 2015 at 15:12
  • There is also an active Bug Report (they call it "Feedback") concerning this: connect.microsoft.com/windowsembeddedIoT/Feedback/Details/… However, my Dashboard now showed "Surveys" besides "Feedback" and "Remove from Dashboard"( suddenly, reason unknown). There I could find the EULA and accept it. Now, I've got the Downloads and my image. Mission accomplished. Commented May 3, 2015 at 16:42

I have registered about 6 months ago. Still waiting with anticipation. They still in beta with KRE (vNext / .NET 5.0) -- Names keep changing. No communication from them yet and no sign of any image whatsoever on the dark net any where to be found. Must be a pretty damn good Non Disclosure or they just dont have a release candidate yet.

I just checked my live account and I got a download link to Windows 10 Phone preview... that is almost the same version as on the Pi. So its close, very close!

We have a Preview of Windows IoT. I have made an alternative tutorial on Pi Exchange here on how to install it based on a few sources.


I've registered myself about 2 weeks ago and i haven't gotten a pre-release. I've searched on google for a while and haven't found any information about a possible pre-release.


I've wrote a short description, how to install Windows 10 IoT Core on Raspberry Pi 2 in 5 minutes (if you're fast). This also works on Win7, Win8, Linux and Mac OS.
