Launching a Desktop Application with a Metro-style app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to start a desktop application from within a metro app.

    eg. if user clicks on something called "clean my computer" the app can open ccleaner for him/her.

    I tried using process class under System.Diagnostics  namespace but it didn't work.

  • No. Windows Store apps cannot directly launch other apps.

    They can launch documents or protocols ion the default handler for the document or protocol, but they have no control over which app will launch to handle it.
