hi all,
I wonder if anyone has any experience of programming a Windows tablet?
Can you program any Windows 10 tablet with visual basic?
Is there anything that you need to do compared with a PC.
Can I just copy the exe file to the tablet and have it run?

I'm thinking of the Windows Connect 9-inch Tablet, Intel Atom, 1GB RAM, 32GB from Tesc0

I don't want anything too expensive as I intend to use it my mobility scooter.


Thanks,
Steve

Since it is a x86 tablet, nothing special to do, but you will have a hard time fitting Visual Studio on a 32GB flash, and it will run slow as hell because you only have 1GB RAM. I would recommend instead you install VS on a proper workstation and then remote into it from your tablet. Tablet also have teeny tiny keyboards, I don't know how you could program anything on there. I know I couldn't.

A Windows tablet IS a PC. Windows 10 is Windows 10, regardless of the form factor of the machine it's running on. Obviously an app made with tablets in mind should be touch-oriented but laptops and even desktops are touch-enabled these days anyway.
