Windows 8: usage of namespace service provider by apps


  • I have a problem on Windows 8 with my Winsock2 Namespace Service Provider:

    When the Internet Explorer is started from Desktop it is functioning perfect. But when i start the Metro Internet Explorer DNS name resolving is failing. It seems that my Namespace Service Provider is not loaded by Internet Explorer.

    Can anybody give some details about the differences between Desktop-IE and App-IE concerning DNS name resolving or some other hints to dig into this problem?

    With regards, Jens
