Metro app with embedded app tiles


  • Hi,

    I would like to display tiles on my metro app which can launch other applications installed such as MS Camera, Travel, Video.  That is, I would like to display a subset of launch tiles typically found in the start screen.

    However, I understand you cannot launch one app from another.  Is this correct and is it not possible to do what I have described?

  • This is correct. Metro style apps cannot directly launch other apps. They can launch only documents or protocols into the default handler.

    There is no way to implement the behavior you describe in a Metro style app.
