I can get the SDK example to launch any desktop apps. It always reports "Failed to launch" in output section of the screen and no app is launched. I'm trying to get a metro app to launch a decktop app and I can't get it working. I'd love to see an example that works. There is not enough information to debug.
I'm using a WebView and I'm loading some Content into it with links starting with "mylink://". To catch the Navigation to those links I added a protocol activation for "mylink", which works perfect. My only problem is, that the app asks the user if he wants to change the app: "MyApp tries to open MyApp". How can I supress this message, because I actually stay in my app?
Is it possible to get some sort of file handle? E.g. I launch a docx from my app, the user changes a letter, saves the file and closes it. Can I get notified after the other application closes its handle?
rosoft.com/en-u s/library/windo ws/apps/hh45268 7.aspx but it crashes on the point where "getResultsOfAs yncOp(op)" should return the result. Is this due to wrong CORS settings on the server side?
Can you briefly explain the details around how and why you handled exceptions in this case?
The API throws exceptions when the launch fails. For example, if multiple handlers for the launched type are installed, the user may be presented with a dialog to chose which handler to use. If the user cancels the dialog instead of selecting a handler, the API will throw an exception.
The behavior of this API changed in the consumer preview. The API no longer throws on failed launches and instead returns a "false" Boolean. It may still throw on invalid arguments.
I am trying to compile and run this app (C# version). I'm getting: "This Member 'Resources' has more than one item, use the Items property " No File or Line # is given.
