UWP Edition

    I've been searching the net and poking at VS2019 but I can't find a way to develop UWPs from the Surface Pro X. VS2019 is running as 32bits x86 binary and doesn't see the local machine AARCH64 as a viable target.

    I'm finding the whole microsoft development ecosystem very confusing. Can't we use a Surface Pro X to develop desktop applications for Windows on ARM?

    Hi,

    This does not seem to be possible to use Visual Studio on a Windows 10 (ARM) device (e.g. Surface Prox X) as of now. You may refer to the following thread for more details:

    You also might want to share your feedback directly with the MS and up-vote on the following thread for native ARM support in VS :
