Extract a cabinet file in Metro Style App

    Question

  • Hi,

    I asked the same question in the C# forum at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winappswithcsharp/thread/4cbf614e-db22-4f4f-87f0-42d6f1b9db88/#0f732278-4c0c-4a65-b49a-d14050f08f16 and is referred to this forum. Can anyone tell me if there is a way to extract a cabinet file in Metro Style App?

    Thanks,

  • There isn't a CAB file extraction API for Metro style apps.

    The only compression API provided in WinRT is Windows::System::Compression, which doesn't provide CAB support.
