Launch desktop application


  • Hi All,


    I have Windows 8 developer preview and I am trying some applications on it.

    I have some queries related to metro style app.

    1. How to launch desktop application on click of metro style app tile. As on click of Visual Studio 2011 tile it switch to desktop view and launches visual studio 2011.

    2. How we can enumerate or access files from other location which is not a part of manifest (e.g. from C Drive). Is there any privileged API to access them.


    Thanks & Regards,
