  • A DLL project is a classic DLL which can be called from a C++ app or p-invoked from a .Net app. It cannot be used at all in a JavaScript app. A Windows Runtime Component is a component which can be projected in to any of the languages used for Metro style apps including JavaScript and .Net as well as C++.

    See Creating Windows Runtime Components for more information on Windows Runtime Components.
