Help wanted! Does anyone have a Surface Pro X ??

Post by SilverAzide »

If anyone has -- or has access to -- a Microsoft Surface Pro X tablet, could you run the following PowerShell command and post the output here?

Code: Select all

(Get-ComputerInfo).CsProcessors
Thank you!

Not sure if this is going to help or not, since the user might be a casual one, but the OP in the thread here seems to have such a device. Maybe you can PM him or ask him to run this snippet for you and share the result. If he'll answer, that is. :confused:

Oh, yes, good catch! Thanks! His thread looks rather ominous, tho... I thought the Surface Pro X ran Windows. It's definitely an ARM processor, but I thought it would at least run Rainmeter and other Win apps.

Yeah, well, it appears it would only run Rainmeter through either some adapted fork of it, or through some kind of emulation if it's "enrolled in the Windows Insider program", according to this and this. I'm not sure what that means, considering Rainmeter extensively uses the Windows APIs in its operations and being enrolled in the Windows Insider program is something I don't know, but maybe Windows 11 addresses this better than Windows 10 (though Microsoft being Microsoft I wouldn't bet on it)... :confused:

In other words, unless we talk about a very recent Windows version (which might or might not support "some" features for "some" programs), the safest way to generalize this would be to take jsmorley's statements in that thread as the "current status" of Rainmeter being supported (or rather not) on such a device, at least for most people. :???:
