Why Visual Studio Code?

With c/c++ support. Is there hope for Microsoft after all?  The C++ support does not install easily under Debian. Sadly. The feeling is good when you open this thingi up and test it.

Running VSCP & Friends Linux version on Windows #VSCP #IoT #M2M


Running VSCP & Friends Linux version on Windows. Yes it sound strange but this is actually possible now in windows 10 build 14316 which have Ubuntu Linux incorporated into the system.  No it’s not a virtual machine its the real thing. Life just got easier for developers of cross platform tools.

Well how to use this new stuff?

First you need to switch your Windows 10 system to the Fast Ring. You do this by going “System Settings > Advanced Windows Update options” and selecting your Insider Preview update setting to the far right. This sets your Windows 10 update to the the Fast Ring.

Now you must turn on Developer Mode via “Settings > Update & security > For developers“. Search for “Windows Features” and choose “Turn Windows features on or off” and enable Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta).

Restart the machine.

Open up a console and type “bash“.  Well you are done. After some work by the machine  you can install the VSCP & Friends system as on any other Linux machine.
