I bought a 3B+ a few months back and have been experimenting with it with Raspbian, but I recently discovered it is possible to run Windows 10 IoT on it and since I am mainly a C# developer, I want to at least try that. I registered for the Windows Insider program so I could download the "preview" install which is supposed to work (with limits) on the 3B+, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to actually get it onto an SD card (bought multiple Samsung EVO 32 GBs for this purpose).

There are older instructions out there that say to use an FFU file, but the aforementioned preview is an .iso, so that doesn't work. Tom's Hardware has a page (dated Feb of this year, so that seemed promising) which referenced the 'Windows on ARM' installer, but that project has been archived off GitHub and is no longer available. The latter's page re-directs visitors to the 'WOA Deployer for Raspberry Pi', but the zip file download is missing files for one of the projects and it won't build (tried both Visual Studio 2017 and 2015).

So I have to ask if anyone has tried this recently, and if so, do you have any advice on how to actually accomplish this?

Please don't respond by telling me not to bother - I still intend to continue with Raspbian, but I would make progress much faster if I could get Win 10 IoT to work.

Additional detail - I tried using the Windows 10 'Mount' feature to mount the .iso file as a drive, but what it contained was only an '.msi' file, and executing that did not allow me to change the drive that Windows 10 would install to (so I couldn't point it to the SD Card's drive letter).
