ShareTarget and MFC applications

Sascha Neumann 21 Reputation points

the question is on how to provide ShareTarget functionality in a MFC application.

What I found so far is that ShareTarget is used in combination with UWP apps.
Is ShareTarget restricted to UWP apps only?

Is it possible to have it in MFC applcations as well? Or can I this UWP feature added to MFC applications?
Maybe you can point me to an example. Anyway, thank you for your time.

Best regards,

    Hi, @Sascha Neumann

    Yes, with the Anniversary Update for Win10 it is now possible for all desktop apps, thanks to the Desktop Bridge platform.

    You could refer to the similar thread: Can my Win32/NET app become a ShareTarget on Win10 and the article Adding UWP features to your existing PC software
