Hello, I have just tried to use the FlickrNet Library (v3.5.0) for a Windows App Store Project. It runs fine but when i try to validate the App for the Windows Store (with the Certification Kit) the test fails with several "API unsupported" errors.

Will there be a separate version for use in the Windows App Store? Or is there another solution to use the FlickrNet Library in the Windows App Store?

Thanks

Error List:

  • API System.Configuration.IConfigurationSectionHandler in SYSTEM, PUBLICKEYTOKEN=B77A5C561934E089 not supported for this kind of application. FlickrNet.dll calls this API.
  • API System.Net.WebProxy in SYSTEM, PUBLICKEYTOKEN=B77A5C561934E089 not supported for this kind of application. FlickrNet.dll calls this API.
  • API System.Xml.XmlNode in SYSTEM.XML, PUBLICKEYTOKEN=B77A5C561934E089 not supported for this kind of application. FlickrNet.dll calls this API.

Have you tried using the silverlight or wp7 version perhaps? These will be closer to what the windows store is expecting.

But to answer your question - yes, I do intend to do a Windows8 Runtime version - although initially it will probably be .Net only (so no Javascript or C++ support).

Now i have also tried the silverlight and wp7 library with the same result - they also fail with many "API unsupported" Errors.
So i have to wait for the Win8RT Version. Maybe there is a Roadmap for release?

Hi

Check out https://github.com/samjudson/FlickrNet-Experimental for the latest source. You should be able to compile that project for release in the store.

Feel free to raise any issues over at Github if it doesn't work.
