Does anybody have a "Windows on ARM" device and would be willing to help?

#1 Post by deathcubek » Mon May 23, 2022 12:41 pm

Hello,

since I don't have a "Windows on ARM" device, I can make ARM64 builds of my program, but I have no way to actually test them (not even in a VM).

So, would anybody who happens to own such a device be willing help me out? Probably won't take longer than a few minutes.

Thank you and best regards!

Well, whoever wants to give it a try, here is a simple test app:

How about a cloud virtual machine? I know Microsoft Azure started offering them in preview last month. Not sure if they're generally available yet.

Really, I have no idea what is the minimum cost for renting a VM at Azure (would really only need it for ~1h) as a non-enterprise user. But I didn't plan to invest money :wink:

I'll keep my eyes open for a Windows ARM device and message you if I come across it.
