Native X86 and X64 DLLs added to the AppX package RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have some core technology built in to DLLs (built for X86 and X64 archtiectures). It looks like we can install them as part of our AppX. I believe we can also target our app to "Intel only" (as we don't have ARM versions of the DLLs - yet). We can access these DLLs from our C# Metro app using PInvoke. I assume as long our DLLs don't rely on any external shared DLLs we should be OK. We will statically compile in the C-Runtime.

    It would seem that we are good to go but is this mixing of native DLLs built for speicific processor architectures in a WinRT app allowed by the Windows Store?

  • Hi demonblade,

    To answer your question on the Intel / ARM versions, please read over this thread.

    For the second part of your question we will need to move you over to the Tools thread for an answer.
