    Starting with the Windows 8.1 Update that was announced at //Build 2014, the functionality of performing “Inter Process Communication” – which is commonly referenced to as “IPC” between a side-loaded Windows Store app and a Desktop process has been enabled to leverage existing “desktop” code.

    Please note that this IPC functionality has only been introduced for “side-loaded” Windows Store apps and is still NOT supported for apps that are published to the Store.

    The Whitepaper on “Brokered Windows Runtime Components for side-loaded Windows Store apps” has been published here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn630195.aspx that goes through the nitty-gritty details of the steps required to to enable a side-loaded Windows Store app to communicate with a desktop process.

    This blog will provide you with a checklist of things you need to keep in mind when implementing this solution/scenario.
