This doesn't work anymore.
There is no dx branch.
Running winrtBasic example crashes (in IsProcessorFeaturePresent)
There seems to be changes needed for VS2013.
Could you please update this tutorial for the latest version of Cinder / VS 2013?
Beginning to look at c++ for Windows 8 & Windows Phone 8 Development and the picture seems quite bleak.
- Trying to work with c++ for these two platforms one creates horrible horrible c++ code such as:
This code is of course not portable and people used to c++ won't even understand it & go & try using such code for android or osx ios apps.
So far, i couldn't find a single good example from Microsoft (or anyone else) with a big portion of standard c++ code, and only a small portion of horrible Platform dépendent code. Please please show me I'm wrong, list links and even better make c9 videos.
- Getting accustomed to the Microsoft Virtual Academy, everything is done with xaml/c#. Example "Build Apps for Both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 Jump Start" or "Building Apps for Windows Phone 8 Jump Start".
- It seems to me nothing has changed and c#/xaml is de facto the only model supported by Microsoft.
- c++ seems limited to scenarios where you want to do almost everything by yourself (e.g. hardcore directx c++ non portable programming). So c++ doesn't work well with higher level winRT libraries, or to make it work one has to write tons of horrible c++ code lines making it absolutely not Worth the effort and strongly suggesting using c# instead.
- Microsoft seems committed to c++, but only as a Tool to write its own OSes and applications, and not committed to c++ for developpers that want to use the language for what it's good, notably portability and reuse.
- Please prove me wrong and make a series detailing a non trivial app running on Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Android & ios with most it developped in real standard c++, plus a part that is Platform specific.

I would like to know more about cost of virtual functions vs generics, what are the estimates in typical scenarii, when is it really prohibitive, are there simple rules of thumbs that one can use.
Also why isn't there any talk from Alexander A. Stepanov in Going native? Scheduling conflict? Not interested? I am wrong in thinking he is still actively involved in c++?
Yes you can install an OS from iso.
Hyper-V and the arguably better VirtualBox support the mounting of an iso directly in the virtual dvd-rom. Don't forget to unmount it once the os is installed otherwise it may always reboot from dvd.
I'm using FreeBSD 9.1 and opensuse 12 without problems.
Originally I was using WiVndows's 8 Hyper-V but the lack of support for sound and usb was a big turnoff so I switched to VirtualBox.
That's where I discovered that it is either Hyper-V or VirtualBox you can't have both at the same time. In fact it is not enough to stop Hyper-V's services, one has to uninstall it (turn Windows feature on or off) from the machine (and reboot 1 or 2 times in the process). Don't worry you can reinstall it if you want.
Hardwarewise an example of incompatibility with Hyper-V would be some tape drives whose drivers are only semi-compatible with W8 and backup softwares that do not accept virtualized tape drivers.
The app is fine but I think it is typical of many Windows apps and not in a good way, e.g. you get about 50% of the functionality of existing web sites. For example no comments and super poor navigation and generally extremely poor graphic design- whereas design and interactivity should be an advantage for Windows 8 apps otherwise why bother?
From TheRegister to Air France to Amazon to so many other Windows 8 apps, why is it so?
