Is it possible to unlock the Developer Mode on my Nokia Lumia 730(Windows 10 Mobile) with my Windows 7(64bit Pro) PC? I already installed Interop Tools via Device Portal but only signed Appxbundles can be installed there.

  • I mean the Developer Registration. I have a License but with all the Tools included in WinPhoneSDK 7.1 dont work. I installed everything they said. Even Zune doesnt recognize my Phone. – 4thebadwoofsky Jul 20 '17 at 10:29

Since Windows 10 Mobile you don't need a PC to enable the Developer mode.

  1. Open Settings
  2. Go to Update & security
  3. Then For developers
  4. Pick Sideload apps or Developer mode depending on your needs.

Enabling device portal allows you to install apps on the phone via a web browser on the PC.

Windows 7 PCs can’t run the W10M (UWP) app locally (only on a remote Windows 10 device). You can’t use the emulators or the simulator in Visual Studio 2015 either.

  • I didnt meant "this" Developer Mode, i meant the Developer Registration. I have a License but with all the Tools included in WinPhoneSDK 7.1 dont work. I installed everything they said. Even Zune doesnt recognize my Phone. Its like Windows 10 Mobile is not compatible with Windows 7 – 4thebadwoofsky Jul 20 '17 at 10:29
  • Developer Registration is not needed for Windows 10 Mobile. Zune doesnt work with Windows 10 Mobile either. When connected to a Windows 10 PC you only have the companion app and you're able to transfer files using File Explorer (like music, videos). – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Jul 20 '17 at 10:43
  • But how can i deploy XAP files with Windows 7? – 4thebadwoofsky Jul 20 '17 at 10:47
  • Tried the Device Portal? You need to have the phone and PC on the same network and then you can upload the app through your web browser to the phone. – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Jul 20 '17 at 10:48
  • I know, i tried to install "Interop Unlock 1.7" and it worked. but i still can not install regular .xap or other tools like NativeToastLauncher etc – 4thebadwoofsky Jul 20 '17 at 10:53
