How to migrate Windows CE application to Windows IoT

Zi Bin Heaw 0 Reputation points

I would like to migrate a Windows CE application to a new platform that will remain in support for the next few years.

I'm looking into Windows 10 IoT Core, but it is stated that the Windows 10 IoT Core Package August 2020 update is required.

Will I be able to still get this update? Or is this product no longer supported?

Besides that, I'm also looking into Windows 10 IoT Enterprise, but I don't see any guidelines or examples for Windows CE migration.

Anyone knows where I can get information related to this?

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

    hello @Zi Bin Heaw ,

    The migration path from Windows CE to Windows 10 IoT Core is not recommended because it is retired.

    This product retired on November 10, 2020.

    There are a number of options available, depending on the skills, needs, and hardware constraints of your team:

    • Windows 10/11 IoT enterprise
    • Linux equivalents (including yocto)
    • Constrained devices running eg. C or Python

    Old Windows CE and Windows IoT/ARM a very different.

    The best way is to re-write the application.
