Visual C++ Nano Server application
This is a simple C++ template that helps you get started with writing applications that run on both Nano Server and other Windows installation options. The template is based on the Win32 console application with the following customizations:
The sample application targets the Windows 10 Anniversay Update SDK (10.0.14393.0) by default. To target a different SDK right-click the solution name in Solution Explorer and choose "Retarget Solution".
The API I want to use is not supported on Nano Server. What should I do?
APIs are not supported on Nano Server either because the underlying feature is also not supported or the API has been superseded by a newer API. In most cases, MSDN should offer a recommended substitution.
Does Nano Server support all platforms (x86/64/arm)?
No. Nano Server only supports x64. Be sure to set the debug target to x64 when building for Nano Server.
How do I debug the project on Nano Server?
Configure Nano Server for remote debugging by installing PowerShell Nano SDK from https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/Microsoft.PowerShell.NanoServer.SDK/22.214.171.124 which provides
remote debugger related cmdlets.
