Metro style apps - can they connect to a named-pipe?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I would like to know if it is possible to use named-pipes in any of the 3 technologies available for Metro apps (C#+XAML, HTML5+css+js, C++ +XAML). I mean named-pipes created by a desktop environment application, not another Metro app. Thanks in advance.

  • You cannot open a named pipe and communicate with another process from a metro style application using the traditional win32 APIs.

  • There could be alternate methods? Just to Exchange short strings in real-time.
