Question about CPU platform

    Question

  • Hi everybody,

    I'm developping a Windows Store App which is at the moment on x86 platform,

    but my question is, will my application work on every devices with different CPU architecture?

    I guess not, especially for devices with ARM CPU, so in this case will I have to build 2 packages with one with x86 architecture and another with ARM architecture?

    And finally I guess x86 app will work on x64 platform, isn't it?

    Thank you for reading my question.

  • It depends on the language you are using.

    JavaScript and .Net apps can be built to run on AnyCPU.

    If you have native components they will need to be architecture specific.
