Windows 7 and the Particle Cloud

I have a Photon, it’s easy to program and publish data to the Particle Cloud. However…
My requirement is to read this data from a Windows 7 machine (the development environment is VB in Visual Studio 15 Community). I’m fairly sure that the Particle Windows SDK will not work in this environment. So please please how do I accomplish this?

Why do you assume the Windows SDK won’t work? It’s a Portable DLL that works in C# and VB. As long as you are using .NET 4.5.2, it should work just fine (it’s supported on Windows 7 SP1).

Yep using .NET 4.5.2

OK, using the following code as a test:

Imports Particle.SDK

Public Class Form1
    Private Async Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Label1.Text = "Waiting"
    End Sub

    Private Async Sub LogIn()
        Dim success As Boolean = Await ParticleCloud.SharedCloud.LoginAsync("", "xxxxxxxxx")
        If success Then
            Label1.Text = "Logged on"
            Label1.Text = "Can't log on"
        End If

    End Sub

End Class

I get the following run time exception on the ParticleCloud.SharedCloud.LoginAsync function

       Message=Operation is not supported on this platform.

Now I could be/probably doing something wrong.

Okay, let me look into this.

Just bumping this up to see if anyone else can help. Thanks
