I am a Windows user so I want to install Win IoT Core on a Raspberry Pi 3. Afterwards, I also want to install Mathematica. Is it possible to install Mathematica on Win IoT Core?

Note: Mathematica that I want to install is Mathematica for Raspberry Pi.

    Windows IoT is not Windows, there is no advantage for the average Windows user (except PowerShell users). Mathematica for Raspberry Pi is a special version for Raspbian. So the answer is NO, it won't run under Windows IoT.

Mathematica for Raspberry Pi is really for Linux OS distros only, like Rasbpian.

enter image description here

Windows IoT Core is simple Windows based ARM kernel that allows you to run single Universal Apps with limited background threads. It is not, as stated before a Windows Desktop environment, it is more like a sandbox. (although more and more features are added constantly)

I do not know where to get the other versions from, even though I have a MSDN and Microsoft Parter account - I cannot find these download for testing


Simple answer: No, it is not possible to install Mathematica on Windows IoT.
