I wrote two programs, one is a desktop-based program, another is based on the Windows 8 store app. Both of them can link with the dll, but the program which is based on the Windows 8 store app don't be performed the corresponding operation (like open the device). So How can I solve this problem? Thank you in advance!

  • Generally, you cannot do too many things in Store apps, and this problem does not have a satisfactory solution for many kinds of devices (so called "setup classes").

    Let's wait for the upcoming MS Build event and Win8 update. Rumors are that some important changes for store apps  can be announced there.
