Trying to build a control panel like metro app

    Question

  • Control panel has both a metro app and you can invoke the desktop control panel from the control panel metro app. I have a similar need-to expose rudimentary operations in metro,but have an "advanced" link that will "transition" (just like metro control panel) to the desktop app. What is the technique needed to acheive this please??

  • There is no supported way for Metro style apps to communicate with Desktop apps in this manner. The control panel can do so since it is part of the OS.

  • Are you sure,or is there a backdoor or undocumented way? I am looking for a technical explanation.Control panel is as much an application as any other,even if it ships as default installed.
