Windows Store apps / .NET 4.5 plans

Hello,

Does Aspose currently have a timeline for developing .NET components for Windows Store apps (Windows RT and 8), on the .NET 4.5 framework? I tried using Aspose Slides in a C# Windows Store App but it doesn’t work due to .NET 4.5 no longer supporting ArrayList. I suspect similar problems will be encountered trying to use any of the other Aspose .NET components in Windows Store Apps.

Does Aspose have a timeline for adding .NET 4.5 support?

Hi Jared,


Thanks for inquiring Aspose.Slides.

An issue with ID SLIDESNET-33631 has been created to provided this feature support. I have linked this thread with mentioned issue so that we may apprise you once the issue will be resolved. The requested feature is likely to be available during second quarter of 2013.

Hi,

Thanks for using Aspose.Cells.

We have closed the issue

  • CELLSNET-40812 - Windows Store apps (Windows RT & 8) / .NET 4.5 plans

as Won’t Fix now. We have no plans about Windows Runtime/WinRT/Windows Store now. Sorry for inconvenience.

Also we have evaluated UWP (Universal Windows Platform)
more. UWP bases on .Net core. UWP has less APIs comparing .Net
Framework. e.g. We use a lot of APIs in the namespace “System.Drawing”.
But it is not contained in UWP. So we also do not have any plans about
UWP now.
