Using esent from a metro style app (Windows 8 developer preview)

Oct 12, 2011 at 5:18 AM

A subset of jet is supported for Metro style apps in the Windows 8 developer preview. There are some restrictions around where the database can be stored (due to the new app model). I've posted an updated sample to make this work here FYI.

Thanks Gerald! The current approach where new APIs end up in a different class works well so that a developer can choose to target an older OS, and be aware of which functions would break. But now that Metro-style apps are a subset of Windows 7 functionality that model breaks down. We're discussing the best way to solve this problem.
