I would like to access to my Raspberry Pi 3 (running Windows 10 IoT) using Windows IoT Remote Client. The application connect successfully and I can control everything on my PI (mouse and keyboard works fine) but the screen is totally white, so I do not see anything, what I do. Is there any other way to access to Windows 10 IoT's desktop? (e.g. install vnc server, using TeamViewer)

I thought that I install a Linux distribution (e.g. Raspbian) to my Pi and I start somehow a Windows 10 IoT virtual machine. I could reach the Linux OS easily so I can see the virtual Win10IoT OS too. Could it work, or is it a totally bad idea? :D

Thanks for your help!

IoT Core version 16299 has a known bug with the Remote Desktop Client on Raspberry Pi devices: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/iot-core/release-notes/commercial/fallcreatorsupdate

According to LAmadio_MSFT in the comments on the page, a fix is in the works and should be released in the (near) future.


Windows 10 Iot version 16299 has an issue with Iot Remote Desktop Client, so you must wait for a newer version of Windows to fix it!

  • Any target date for this expected fix? Unable to deploy UWP app to a RPI as VS2017 does not connect to it.
