Desktop style windows store apps? RRS feed

  • Question

  • VS Express 2013 for Windows works for Windows Store apps. Can a Windows Store app have desktop style and run on destop of windows 8? Can things like MS office be developed with VS Express 2013 for Windows?

  • VS Express has different versions for each target platform. You can get VS Express for Desktop to create desktop applications.

    You cannot submit desktop applications to the Windows Store except as a link to your own sales portal (i.e. Microsoft will not provide payment or file hosting for these applications, but you can still list them in the store - a user will be sent to your website when they download). And this is not available on Windows RT for obvious reasons (3rd party desktop software is not available on Windows RT).
