I'm looking to develop a simple windows 8 tablet application with arcobjects. Is it possible to use the ArcObjects Runtime SDK? If not, is there an ArcObjects SDK for Windows store Applications?

1 Answer 1


There is a separate API for making Windows Store Apps, I'd recommend looking into that. It appears impossible to use ArcObjects from a Win8 App Sandbox because of some of its runtime restrictions and the limited subset of Win32 it allows.
