What architecture (x86, x64, etc.) should I target when compiling for submitting my app?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I was wondering about the processor architecture to target when releasing my app to the windows store. Should I compile for the x86 or x64 platform? How are applications targeting a specific platform handled at the windows store level? Are applications available to you filtered based on your device/pc processor?

    Thx

  • Apps are filtered based on the user's system.

    If you compile for arm and x86 your app will be available on all systems. An x86 app will run on both x86 and x64. An x64 app will run only on x64.
