Can I publish an app at the store that runs only on x86? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Can someone confirm if windows store allows publishing apps that run only on x86 (or ARM for that matter)? Does the store mandate that all the store apps run on all the Win8 supported processors?

    Requirement 3.3 states that the user experience should be consistent across all the supported processors. It is not clear to me if it implies that all apps must run on ARM as well in order to qualify to be in the store.

    Yes you can select a specific platform when you submit your app. When creating your app package you can also select which platforms you want to create packages for. Obviously if you create your package for x86 only then you can't specify all platforms during store submission.
