MAC address- bypass


  • Hi, 

    My windows store application needs to retrieve the MAC address of the device it is running on. 

    Unfortunately, it cannot be done from Metro application. 

    I am not publishing my application in the Store, so I thought about nice bypass. 

    Since I am writing installation package for sideloading I was thinking of retrieving the MAC address during the installation(PS,cmd) and place it in some file and when the application will be launched, i will access this file. 

    As far as I know, it isn't possible to access files as the developer would like. 

    Are you familiar with a proper way to do so? 

    Thanks in advance!!

  • There is no supported way for Windows Store apps to communicate with desktop apps like this. There is no proper way to achieve your goal.
