msvcrt.dll is disallowed, what to do?! RRS feed

  • Question

  • "API strstr in msvcrt.dll is not supported for this application type. zazz.dll calls this API."

    There are many more lines like this in the report's xml. This means we can't use almost all of the non winrt dlls. Right? Really?

  • It sounds like you have a DLL built with an older version of the C-runtime which isn't compatible with Metro style apps. If you use the C runtime from Visual Studio 11 then you should be fine.

    I confirmed that using strstr in a VS11 compiled Metro style app passes certification.
