Registering background task RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to register a background task without starting the app?

    I'm thinking if the user installs/downloads the app and then don't start it. I still want to be able to update live tile from a background task.

  • No. The user must start the app so it can register the task and/or push channel.

    You can set up a live tile to pull from a constant URL in the app manifest without the use needing to run the app.
