Using Win32 application inside WinRT app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Win32 application that does many things inside the system... and finally it generates some data. 

    Can I create (and at some point publish) a Metro app that works as a user interface for this data? 

    If yes: how should I do it, so my app will pass the certification process.

    (I had an idea to save data from Win32 to my app sandbox folder... (or on my server and then download it using JSON). The only problem is in "forcing" user to download my *.exe program...)

  • No, you can't do this.

    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.
