    I think the Windows.winmd reference is all you need? That is why there was a build conflict in the first toast notification demo. I am guessing.

    After watching this, there is even less motivation for me to try and integrate UWP features into my WPF app. What a mess!

    As fourbadcats said, this wasn't exactly the most reassuring video. I may give it a go though, but this looked like a headache.

    I also wonder why the presenter was someone from Telerik and not MS.

    I hoped to see improvements on the stability and developer experience using UWP APIS in "old" desktop applications. I actually stopped watching the video around 13 minutes, because up to that moment what I saw was exactly what I experienced around a year ago, trying to add some APIs to Greenshot.

    Either the video gets better after that, or it's still a pain to use Windows-10 APIs in WinForms / WPF.
