Using Ice for Windows Mobile ARM in VS15 project

edited July 2017 in Help Center


I'm trying to support my UWP for Windows 10 Mobile devices. Therefore I need to provide a ARM package.

My understanding so far is that I need Ice-E for doing so.

Can you give me some advice on how to create the necessary Libs please?

Or is there any other way to get it done?

Thanks Markus

    Hi Markus,

    We provide support for UWP with C++/CX as part of Ice, not Ice-E. You would need Ice-E if your target is an embedded Linux device.

    With Ice 3.7, Ice-E and Ice Touch will become parts of Ice, so you'll simply use Ice for all platforms.

    We currently test, support and provide binary distributions for Ice UWP on x86 and x64, but not on ARM. Building Ice from sources with an UWP/ARM target shouldn't be difficult ... however, it's not something we test.

    Out of curiosity, what would be the typical Windows 10 ARM Mobile Device that you want to support?

    Best regards,

  • Hi Bernard,

    thanks for your quick answer.

    Hm, I than have to study your documentation ans samples a little bit more ;-)

    I want my app to run on a Lumia 640 Smartphone which comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.

    Providing just a x86 and a x64 version unfortunately is not enough :-(
