accessing file from a metro application

    Question

  • I am trying to access some file in my metroApp to read/write it content.

    How will metro app know that the file is in use by other process(ie some process is writing in it) and i want the content of file to be read after other process has stopped writing.

    Thanks

  • Trying to open the file will fail if the file is exclusively opened by another process. Your app can try again later if that fails.

    There is no supported means of IPC between Metro style apps and desktop apps.
