[UWP][C++] windows store apps - are c++ standard functions allowed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I am getting a whole slew of validation errors when I run my app through the windows app cert kit for store apps.  I had previously posted all my validation errors in this thread but did not receive a satisfactory response to the following fundamental question, so am reposting just a simplified question that can hopefully get me a yes or no answer:

    Is it possible to use the following standard c++ code in a native dll compiled with /ZW for uwp?  

    std::exception (and classes that inherit from it)

    rand, srand

    malloc, free


    I get many more errors than this, but these in particular seem so basic and fundamental that I cannot believe they are not supported in a uwp app and therefore must conclude that I am doing something wrong in my compilation.

    Many thanks
