  • Gary,

    I believe the start contract is required.  However I will research this for you.

  • Hi Eric,

    This is for a webcam.

    Or is it possible to "unpin" the start tile so it does not display in the start screen?

  • Gary,

    It is not possible to have the options experience without the start experience.  A user can unpin the tile.  Also an OEM can do this.  However the tile is still discoverable and if clicked should provide a positive user experience.  The following document has ideas for Metro style Device Apps for Cameras:
