I have a Raspberry Pi 2 with Windows 10 IoT and I can deploy and debug my applications. However, I only have 1 screen, so if I want to see the UI displayed by Raspberry Pi, I need to disconnect the cable of my monitor, connect it to the Raspberry and back again.

I am looking for a tool which

  • runs on Windows 10 IoT (ARM), particularly for Raspberry Pi 2 (server side)
  • forwards the screen to a Windows 10 (x86, Desktop) client
  • frame rate should be at least 5 per second
  • is free, Open Source preferred

The tool needn't

  • forward mouse or keyboard events as I have attached a keyboard
  • Have you considered using a hdmi splitter? Then you can duplicate the screen output from the Raspberry pi.

  • Another option could possibly be to use team viewer or remote desktop. Have you tried that?

  • @holroy: yes, I thought about something similar, a KVM switch. If it's possible in software, I'd prefer not to buy additional hardware. My screen is VGA Sub-D by the way. Aug 29, 2015 at 21:19
  • @holroy: I couldn't connect to the Raspberry via Remote Desktop. Perhaps it's just turned off by default (like in other Windows editions) but since W10 IoT does not have a Desktop, I don't know how to turn it on. Aug 29, 2015 at 21:21
  • you say can deploy your application, I would suggest finding out how to enable remote desktop via a temporary modification to your application.

There is now an option to do this through Remote Display Experience.
