Developers interested in learning how they can bring their classic desktop applications forward to the Windows Store now have a great new resource.
Recent Project Centennial Stories
Microsoft acknowledged a bug in its Desktop Bridge technology last night that could crash Windows 10 with the error KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE and potentially put your machine into an endless boot loop.
Microsoft this week shipped a preview version of its Desktop App Converter, previously called Project Centennial. This app helps developers convert classic desktop applications to packaged UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps for Windows 10 and then extend them with unique Windows 10/UWP features.
At Build 2016, Microsoft announced Project Centennial technology and its tooling will be available in the next Windows 10 Insider build. I was able to use this technology early to convert a real-world desktop app to a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app in just one minute.
