I expect that we could have a first version in just few days. Harbour for Windows 8 WinRT is working and now I am building a console alike app so you can load, save and run PRGs from it. Or alternativaly you can build your own apps using it (without the need of the console)

All the development is done entirely from Visual Studio 2012 IDE :-)

many thanks for your support :-)
regards, saludos

Otto, WinRt is the api for Windows 8, in 28 days you can buy Windows 8 from stores, or download the 90 days trial from internet.
but Windows RT for ARM ( tablets like surface), we cant buy, have instaled in OEM.

i guess antonio are using Windows 8 pro to his tests.

Antonio, congratulations for the work.

Let me speculate a bit, when you're ready portability, we will be able to:

-make programs that manipulate the live tiles?
-send programs to the Marketplace of Windows 8 and sell there?
-in the future do these same programs for Windows phone 8? Windows 8 and Windows phone 8 share the same kernel.

I ask this because I heard about some problems of compatibility and security, that Microsoft was not approving certain types of programs compiled with certain compiler flags or pack in the marketplace.

Thank you, I am anxious waiting for a beta.

Norberto,

Yes, we can use all WinRT features. We are a truly C/C++ WinRT app. I have recompiled the entire Harbour using WinRT :-)

I plan to send an app to the marketplace soon, so we will check it.

-in the future do these same programs for Windows phone 8? Windows 8 and Windows phone 8 share the same kernel.


Thats what gave me the key :-) I remebered I had read that Windows phone 8 allows C/C++ code. When I reviewed Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate and saw the C/C++ support, then I got the connection. We can use the same implementation on Windows Phone 8 :-)

In fact, I learned this way when I played with the iPad, the iPhone and Android. We used the same technique with them. So we were ready for this... :-)

Antonio

are you have a Windows phone and Windows 8 developer account ? i have both, if you wanna , we can use, im registered developer.

This opens a new world of possibilities for us, Microsoft and nokia, which are partners in the development of Windows phone applications are investing and financing developers.

and imagine the same program running on desktop, tablet and smartphone? Let's not over worry about even with a fiveweb, same as facebook itself said that this giving up on making their applications in html5 and returning to do in native code. We will have an application on the server and another on the device, accessing the database, and the best and the device can be in iphone, android, tablet with Windows 8 and Windows phone. because fivewin has versions for all.

Thanks
norberto
