  • Hello.

    Can we use Microsoft Robotic in a Win App ?

    For example :
    A preview of connected  webcams to system.
    Or sending and receiving data to USB with a Win App ?

  • It's more a case of the other way around. You can use WinForms from inside a DSS service.

However, the hosting app does not have direct access to DSS services - it is just a container. Therefore I think you would be better off running a service that displays a WinForm.

    If you have a look at the TeleOperation sample I wrote for our book, it does a directory lookup for webcam services and then displays the output of the first webcam it finds in a WinForm. You can get the code here:
