Windows app store

Post by mvillion » Sat May 28, 2016 10:58 am

Hello

I have written an app which I wish to upload to the Windows App store.

The only information I can find about this relates to Visual Studio which of course is no help as we are building in Livecode.

Is there ANY information or clue ANYWHERE about how to address this challenge?

Thanks
Matt

RunRev told me that it is not possible to use Livecode to write code that is acceptable for the Windows app store.
Apparently it is a totally different code and API structure that is not compatible with the binaries outputed by Livecode.

I made the assumption that Windows was Windows but apparently that is not true when the App store comes into play.

I Think what you need to do is download the MS Centennial Tools and convert the livecode app to be a universal app.

I will give it a go and see what happens.
