  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to make an UWP app that work together with a .exe program (I want to do so because of the background limitation of UWP apps), so the .exe app is like a background service that has no surface, and the UWP app is a surface to that service.

    I have seen something like this before but i don't remember where.
    so is it possible?

  • Hi,

    Yes, this is possible to communicate with a .exe file inside the UWP app. You could do that using the new "fullTrustProcess" extension.

    Here is a sample for this:AppServiceBridgeSample. You could refer this sample for more information.

    Best regards,

    Roy
