How can I make https requests for a Metro app using C++

    Question

  • I have researched this question a bit, and I have not been able to find a satisfactory answer.  I need to make HTTPS requests via C++.  I found the following topic:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/hh770550.aspx

    which  shows how to make HTTP requests, but there is no mention of whether HTTPS is supported (I am guessing that it is not?).  There is some discussion on other threads about creating a C# component to do the work and calling it from C++, and I am not adverse to doing this if it is possible.  Can someone point me in the right direction here.  I really cannot believe that this is not more easily supported.

    Thanks.
