Running seamless job on Desktop mode from Metro mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, 

    I am developing a Metro application which should retrieve the machine MAC address which it runs on. 

    Clearly, it cannot be done from the Metro. 

    It is possible to run some process which will be seamless to the user yet successfully retrieve the MAC address? 

    Thanks in advance!

  • No, this is not possible, and it's by-design.  You will have to run a desktop app in order to get this information.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
