Communication between Metro Apps and desktop (win32) app

    General discussion

  • We currently have win32 based application, which works fine on Win7 as well as on Win8 basic desktop mode (non-metro). The current app has some UI components as well, so we wanted to support metro based UI as well, for which we wanted to communicate to our process running in the non-metro mode to fetch few information to show on the metro base app.

    Please share your thoughts and suggestions.

  • There is no supported way for a Windows Store app to communicate directly with a desktop app.
