Windows Dev Center

Metro Apps and Dynamics CRM


  • hi,

    We have proof-of-concept metro app that we want to launch metro IE as Dynamics CRM client, but since IE metro does not work with Dynamics CRM 2011 - it does not support ActiveX, we want to launch IE desktop instead. How do we do this? XAML on VS 2011 Express for Windows Dev Preview does not support Hyperlink control, it only supports HyperlinkButton which does not have NavigationURI. I was thinking of launching IE desktop on the Click event of HyperlinkButton but does sure how to launch IE from C#. thanks lots.

  • You can't launch a specific application from a Metro style app.  You can use the Launcher.LaunchDefaultProgram to launch the default handler for a file or protocol, but you cannot control which application will handle it.  If you launch it will launch in the user's preferred web browser, whatever that is.

  • Found a quicker way: Set IE to launch in Desktop mode.
