This is a subsection of the full FAQ



Will FreeRTOS run under Windows?

Yes, but not with true real time behaviour.

Two FreeRTOS Windows simulator projects are provided in the main FreeRTOS download. The first uses the free express edition of Visual Studio, and the second uses the Free GCC/MingW and Eclipse tools.

The x86 port will run in a DOS emulation box and the ARM7 Keil port can be completely simulated under windows (as can various other ports).



Are the NNN development tools supported?

Lots of different development tools are supported. Check the list of ports.



Is the NNN microcontroller supported?

Lots of different microcontrollers are supported. Check the list of ports.



How do I create a new port?

See the FreeRTOS porting guide.



What is the difference between an official port, and an unsupported port?

See the 'Officially Supported' and 'Contributed' FreeRTOS Code description.
