OLE in Windows store applications RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a question regarding the Windows Store applications (metro style apps): is it possible for WinStore Metro app to be a client for using desktop app as an OLE server? In other words, can Metro application control the Desktop application via OLE? If yes, please let me know where to start from.

    Thank you for the answers.

  • I don't have any authoritative links, but given the sandboxed nature of Windows Store Applications and the restrictions on interprocess communication I'm pretty sure the answer is no.
