Can I use symbolic links to access users c drive folders programmatically in my metro app ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to access users C://Users/XXX/Folder programmatically from my metro app.

    Is it possible to access it using symbolic links in the app, as I am unable to access it when I hard code the path of the folder.

  • No, the Store apps run in a sandboxed environment and have limitations on which file/folder locations can be accessed.
