Hybrid metro/wcf apps


  • I have a successful wp7 ebook reader app that I am porting to the Metro style for desktops and tablets. The Metro App wll interface with a wcf service running in the same machine that will perform the download of books from various sources. The result is two tightly linked and complementary applications, each of which is useless without the other.

    How would such a combination of applications be distributed in the Windows 8 world? I am assuming that both apps would be written in such a way that they would pass the respective certification tests, but it would be very user friendly if they could be downloaded together and installed together by an installation program.

    Would this be possible?
