Can the SDK work on Windows 10


#1

Product: [Rolling Spider/Airborne Cargo/Airborne Night/Hydrofoil]
Product version: [X.X.X]
SDK version: [X.X.X]
Use of libARController: [YES/NO] (Only for ARSDK)
SDK platform: [iOS/Android/Unix/Python…]
Reproductible with the official app: [YES/NO/Not tried]

I’m using the Parrot Rolling Spider and I am programming the controller in C.

I have been using my Ubuntu 14.04 computer (ThinkPad W550s). However, I believe that this computer does not have the necessary hardware to communicate effectively with the drone. I also have a seperate computer computer running Windows 10 (HP ProBook 4540s). Is it possible to control the drone via the HP computer while running Windows 10? If so, how would I install the SDK? The only way that I know how to install the SDK is through Linux (or other non-windows) command lines.

Thank you very much.

P.S. The SDK I am referring to is: http://developer.parrot.com/docs/SDK3/#general-information

If there is a more appropriate SDK, please let me know. Thanks.

Hi,

The SDK does not support Windows as its target platform.

Another user successfully used the SDK on windows using Windows subsystem for Linux. This feature of Windows 10 is not yet available to non-insider copies of windows, but will probably be an interesting tool in the future.

You can find the infos in this thread.
