Windows Support
While i was waiting for the pilight v6.0 stability tests i've been working on Windows support. I would love to get feedback from you guys. Let's hope those Windows developers find there way into pilight Dodgy

A test version of the pilight Windows installer can be found (27-04-2015):

And honestly, i didn't know Windows would be supported on the Raspberry Pi 2, so that's extra awesome. Let's see that we can get pilight working on Windows 10 on the Raspberry Pi!
This will not be a straight forward task, in order to minimize impact would it be possible to do that development as a sub branch, e.q. all modifications of development plus win32?
No, already did this in development. The impact should be minimal because almost all new code is places inside:
#ifdef _WIN32

If it wasn't, it was a general bugfix.
A new windows executable has been uploaded.
I installed the windows version to test the functionality

First i direcly started the deamon and it crashed

after that i filed the config.json with some data and again it crash

You clearly have more debugging skills then i have on Windows. Care to help me fix those errors more in depth?
sorry for the late response i was bussy.
I am not a programmer but i have some basic troubleshooting skills.
Please let me know if you need anything, or if i can test something.
Yes, that will be great. I will work on the windows version again soon.
i was just thinking....
as far as i know normal computers doesn't have a GPIO interface.
Would it be posible to got the http://www.kiwi-electronics.nl/arduino-m...-atmega328 device on usb connected and use its GPIO pins?

i think i found my answer here
