what project type is "ToasterServer" in this sample "DllServerAuthoring" RRS feed


All replies

  • Seems to be a WRL project. The Metro App support may have been enabled via manually editing the project file and not via the GUI.

  • Thanks for your response.

    do you know how it's been done? What is the project type to start with and how to change it so it builds for metro?

  • You could choose one of "Blank Dynamic-Link Library" or "WinRT Component Dll" and then manually set "Consume Windows Runtime Extension" to No. You'll find that Metro Style App Support is grayed out for the project in either case.

  • no.

    It's more like atl-dll project, but exactly as well. The .idl of ToastServer is compiled differently than the atl-dll project's .idl.

  • It seems the only difference is that for the .idl file, the compiler has a setting: Enable Windows Runtime which is set to Yes. This adds a  /winrt command line switch.
