  • Even if you can use C# or VB .NET to build Metro Style apps, they are a new kind of applications for Windows 8, and their capabilities are different from the ones of standard Desktop applications realized with .NET Framework 4.5 (they use a completely different architecture).

    .NET APIs for Metro style apps include only a subset of the types provided in the full .NET Framework for each namespace. In particular, System.Windows.Media isn't in that list.

    You can find a reference here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/br230232(v=vs.85).aspx.
