LicenseProviderAttribute in Metro Components

    Question

  • I'm developing a component for Metro Apps and i want to manage licensing using the standard .NET Framework licensing mode, so i want to know if LicenseProviderAttribute will be available in the next release of Windows 8, because in the Consumer Preview it's not.

  • No, this attribute is not available for .Net controls that target Metro development in the Windows 8 Release Preview.

    Thanks,

  • Too bad, is it going to be in the future, or is it going to be a replacement or equivalent for licensing components?

  • It would be very interesting if you can tell us a little more of how to license the use of components (dlls) which target "Portable library" framework in order to solve problems like the one presented in the following thread: Which security mechanisms exists for a dll used by a Metro Style app when it is installed?
