Using runtime class in C++ Win32 app

Gavin Williams 761 Reputation points


I have a runtime component which I'm trying to call from a legacy Win32 app (Not my ideal scenario but I'm being forced to provide an exe without any packaging complications).

It's simple to add a reference to the UWP runtime component to my application project - right click references, add reference, check <my component> but after that I can't seem to find the library. I can see windows winrt stuff, but I can't see my own classes or project namespace.

What do I do to use my runtime component?

Universal Windows Platform (UWP)
