  • Hi,

    You can develop and deploy a service on your server that will return the list of the folders.

    Then from your windows store app you just call the service and process the data the way you need.

    You may have to think carefully about the security though.

  • Thank you!

    I wanted to click a button to know what files are on the server. Do you have any better suggestions.

  • Hi,

    If I understand correclty, You want a button on your Windows Store Apps to display folders that are on a remote server.  Or is it that you want your button to display the folders that are on the machines your Windows Store App is running on?

  • Yes, the click of a button so that the TextBlock displays all file names on it.

  • Hi,

    You cannot access the file system from a Windows Store app.  This is why I told you that the best way I think this can be done would be a service from which you expose a method that will return the data you need.
