    Question

  • All,

    I looking to implement a method in Visual C++ that can load a single file that would content indexes (file locations) information of images, video, and PDF files. Using these indexes be able to load these files within the Windows 8.1 application.

  • It sounds like you want a resource file.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • The app would have the files as part of the app package, so I guess the answer to your question is "yes".

  • Matt,

    Does the App need to take ownership of the directory were all the files are?

    Thanks,
