Is there a library published for HealthVault access via Windows8 App? I tried to convert the Mobile Lib to Window 8 but looks like the System.Security.cryptography.SHA256 class is not avaibale in Windows 8. Is there an alternative?

We have not released an SDK based on the 4.5 framework which is the default framework with Windows 8. The SDK is based on the .NET Framework 2.0. The 2.0 framework isn't installed by default on Windows 8, but you can add it, which should allow your 2.0 projects to work properly.
You can enable the 2.0 framework by going to the Control Panel, Programs, and under Programs and Features, click on "Turn Windows features on or off". Then select ".NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)"

I guess just to be sure I understand your answer here.
We can't develop on the Windows 8 platform for HealthVault, but we can run our older applications. is that correct?

Unfortunately this approach will fail Windows 8 App Store certification. It is still possible to manually create a Service Access Layer to talk to the HealthVault WebServices using only the support Windows 8 .NET Framework 4.5 Libraries.
If you still need any code samples please don't hesitate to post a reply
