Need Windows 8 Store Example

Dec 22, 2012 at 3:29 PM

Has anyone used Managed Esent on a Windows 8 Store app (C# / XAML)?  If so, would you be willing to share an example project?

I have a really short example at http://lunarfrog.com/blog/2012/09/23/extensible-storage-engine/ but generally almost no differences between Esent for W8 and for desktop.

The biggest difference between Windows Store Apps and Desktop is that only the newest versions of the APIs are available for WinStoreApps. That means if you write using that subset it will be easy to support both, but if you start with Desktop then it will be a nuisance to port.

When I made the changes to support Metro/Immersive/WinStoreApps, Visual Studio was still unreleased, so I didn't want to upload a project/sln that would almost certainly break in the future.
