Store App and Windows Forms RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an old Windows Forms application that I would like to transform to a Store App. I would like to do it piece by piece. That means I would be running Windows Forms from the Store App. These would be replaced one by one over time.

    Is this possible?

  • Hi Solardog,

    This is not possible. System.Windows.Forms is not available to Windows Store apps. For more information, see .NET for Windows Store apps overview.

    You will need to rewrite the UI, but depending on how it was written you may be able to keep much or all of your underlying business logic.
