Application Library Support for Windows 8 Style Apps

Postby ChicagoWay » Thu Oct 18, 2012 6:47 pm

Hi,

Windows 8 Style Apps (formerly known as Metro style) do not have access to the full .Net Framework and unfortunately it means we cannot use the Phidgets application library. Please make a version of the Phidgets application library that supports Windows 8 Style Apps ("Metro"). There is a big opportunity here with Windows 8 running on both ARM and Intel Architectures. Supporting Windows 8 style apps means that developers could publish a Windows 8 style app to the Windows store that interfaces with phidgets hardware and may potentially lead to more sales of phidget hardware.

If you support a version of the Phidgets dll for Windows 8, please reply here and let Phidgets, Inc know of your support.

Cheers,


Kevin
