Hey could be interesting to the AutoIt devs out there Will win32 apps (autoit apps) work in the new windows 10 store? Early days yet won't be in the initial win 10 release... Note win32 apps are now called many things - desktop apps - CWA ( Classic Windows Apps - not country womens ..assoc. ) - Project C(entenial) apps These apps will not be sandboxed but NOT be allowed to run as admin , all files will be sandboxed installation handled through the store.. blog link How does this affect autoit - ? FYI following as not supported in Project C apps: “Windows NT Services”,“Things running in the kernel” (device drivers)“System Level Software” (anything not running in the user context)“Elevation”, meaning anything that causes a standard user to get a UAC prompt “will be blocked”.Using parts of other apps in your app, at least in version 1. John indicated that they would like to support extensibility and plug-ins, just probably not initially. The implication was that this might be a direct UWA thing and not specific to Project C, but we can’t be sure. following as supported in Project C apps: “COM”“WMI”“Networking”“Anything else a standard app does that isn’t in the system space”.I am guessing that there are a lot of other things that might end up in the ‘not supported’ list that you might have thought falls under the last item in the supported list but turns out is not supported, but we just don’t know yet: WMI ProvidersWindows Timed and Triggered Events (but they can write new UWA background triggers)Custom ETW ProvidersCOM localsystem (out of process) running as the system to avoid UAC promptsMaybe DCOMSoftware Clients,Application CapabilitiesShell Extensions, Browser Helper Objects, and the like FYI
