Installing on Raspberry Pi

Post by Brian Reynolds » Tue Mar 29, 2016 6:31 pm

Has anyone tried Installing Miditzer 260 on Raspberry Pi?
The latest of Pi installs Windows 10 and there appears adequate power in the Pi to run the Miditzer 260.
I thought about it because of it taking up a lot less room.

I believe the WIndows variant for the Pi is the IoT (Internet of Things) release and will only run 'Universal Windows' apps which I'm pretty sure the Miditzer is not. So I don't think you will get very far with this idea.

Thanks for your reply. I have since learned that Windows Desktop programmes won't work on the IoT version.

Have you thought about getting a MacMini? They're pretty small/quiet.
I've got my Midizter running on an old Core2Duo white iMac... works just fine, and BootCamp extracted the drivers I needed for
WindowsXP. It does take a while to clear through the startup tasks for some reason (that I've not noodled through), but it does work...
and if you put the Miditzer or a shortcut to it in the StartUp folder, it'll boot right up to that!
Hope this helps, Best, Markus

Thanks, Wicks. I'm still exploring ideas and I'll certainly look at MiniMac.
Brian.
