Get processor number in WinRT

Answers

  • The link you found it listed under is located in the documentation for Desktop apps. If it appears to be in the Metro Apps section of the documentation, you should notice an option within a gray bar "Switch Library" to switch to the Desktop section of MSDN.

     

    See if the processor details captured in this thread are sufficient for your needs.

     

     Thanks,

    -David

  • Thank you David, your answer is very helpful.

    But all APIs listed in the second URL have the gray bar you mentioned, and they are all supported by metro, it is really confused to developers.

    BR,

    Greg.

  • Very good point Greg. I'll make sure that feedback get's back to the MSDN Documentation team.

     

    The short story is if the Win32 API isn't listed in the list for Metro style apps, then it will not pass the Store checks. If you do find a hole where you need one of the Win32 APIs not on the list, I encourage you to provide that feedback (with the use case where it is needed) via our Connect site. That pipeline feeds directly into the product group. The Option is in the Feedback tool under Windows Kits\Software Development Kit\API Missing.

     

    The Connect Feedback submission template if you need it:

    Thank you for posting your feedback, we want to make sure we get the right info including your log files.  Can you also submit feedback using the Windows Feedback Tool from the Connect Site associated with your Windows Developer Preview program? If you’re an MSDN subscriber, the information on how to join the Connect program is included on the download page where you installed Windows Developer Preview.  There’s a link to the Connect site and an invitation code that you can click on to join using a Windows Live ID account. If you’re not an MSDN subscriber follow this limited use link to join the Connect program and then follow the steps here
