windows 7 run windows store app

    Question

  • We have developed a Windows store app running well on Windows 8.1 and not sure if we could also make it run on Windows 7 to expand platform coverage? Detailed instructions are appreciated. Thanks.

    regards,

    Lin

  • Hi Linlma,

    If you create your app as windows 8.1 store app you couldn't run int on windows earlier than Win 8.1 , you could it ran on later version of windows for example Win 10. This limitation associated with that in the OS earlier version than your app targeted couldn't be the functionality which your app using, for example in Win 7 wasn't windows store, for supporting earlier version you must create app using technologies targeting for that version
