Is WinAPI Totally Layered by WinRT? Wrapped WinAPI Calls. Invocation Chain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    How many of WinAPI calls are layered by WinRT? Could it be that some core calls like DevicesIoControl are now made though WinRT, which in turn calls .NET (because the .winmd files contain references to mscoree).

    Do we always have a WinAPI -> WinRT -> .NET chain now when invoking WinAPI functions? Even with CX applications?

    Could somebody please confirm this, or am I totally saying a nonsense?

    Thank you.

    Well this is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given...
