Missing API in Windows.Devices.USB for reading string descriptors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    string descriptors in USB devices contains at least the device serial number. The serial number is referenced by the device descriptor and some times important to be known in a Windows Store app. But there is no API to request string descriptors.

    My questions are:

    1. is there an alternative way?

    2. if not, when will Microsoft extend Windows.Devices.USB and add this functionality?

    Thanks for your answer
