WinRT API usage in Qt app



  • Hi All,

    I want to clarify some general questions that bother me in WinRT development using Qt.

    1. When I create an application using Qt's WinRT port, do I create a Windows Store App or a Desktop App?
      I believe that Windows Store, as it can be uploaded to the Store and is executing inside a container, am I right?
    2. Then I want to access WinRT API from my app. I know that WRL should be used for that. The question is what type of API do I have access to (windows store or desktop)? I'm asking because I get different behavior using Wifi Direct API in my app and trying Windows Universal example from Microsoft's GitHub repository.

    Thanks in advance.
