Running metro app in desktop mode? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are developing a metro app, but in order to support both modes, we are considering porting it later to a desktop app using WPF. But trying to save time and budget here, is  there anyway the metro app could still run in desktop mode in a separate window?

    I think I already know the answer is no, but I really need to be sure here.

    Thanks in advance

  • There is no supported way to run a Windows Store app in a separate window as a desktop app.
