Windows 8 Generator

Official Content

GeneXus X Evolution 3 features an application generator for Windows 8 (for both Intel and ARM architectures). It generates apps called "Windows Store Applications" (HTML5/CSS and Javascript).

Status & Roadmap

This generator has been in beta up to June 2016.

Due to lack of announcements related to specific plans for mobile phones from Microsoft, at least during 2016, market trends, among other reasons, GeneXus has stopped the development work for this generator.
Nevertheless, the bits of the generator are still included in GeneXus X Evolution 3 Upgrades and code generation for this platform keeps "as is". The generator is not included in GeneXus 15.
