Opening a network share RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way I can open a remote server share from a metro app, or run a desktop app which lies on a network share?  E.g. \\server\share\foo.exe

    What about just opening up Windows Explorer to a network share?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Bitrotor,

    There is no way to do this. Metro style apps can't interact directly with the file system or directly launch other applications.
