  • GDI is not supported at all in Metro style apps. Changing the WINAPI_FAMILY macro will allow the app to compile with unsupported API but they may not work and they will not successfully validate.

  • GDI is still available for desktop apps. It is not available for Metro style apps. We cannot comment on unreleased versions.
