Qt based application's eligibility for windows app certification

    Question

  • Can a Qt based application be submitted for windows app certification? If yes, then should Qt be certified as well?  On the same lines, if an app uses some 3rd party tools, do those tools need to be certified as well?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Toolkits aren't ccertified separately. Anything included in the app is certified with the app.

    A QT implementation which used Windows Store API would be fine, but you'll have to check with QT to see if the provide one (I don't think so, but I would be happy to be wrong here)

  • I'm afraid that it's not possible. You can submit a Qt based application but surely it can't pss the WACK(windows app certificate kit) test. So if you use Qt or some 3rd party libaries, make sure that these libraries didn't call any APIs which don't support windows store apps. Otherwise WACK test will fail.
