  • Well... not very experienced in that, but I think you cannot host WinForm controls in wpf if your application is gonna run in a partial trust environment, like many configurations for Internet Explorer.

  • I might say that there are no limitations.

    However, let us know what kind of application you are trying to build so we can pinpoint possible restrictions.
