Porting Win32 Apps to Windows* 8 Desktop


This article discusses a few challenges in porting a win32 app to Windows 8 Desktop. We use POV-Ray*, an open-source ray tracing program, to illustrate these issues. Three approaches are considered: running unchanged binaries on Windows 8, recompiling for Windows 8 using Microsoft Visual Studio* 2012, and redesigning the app to use the touch and sensor capabilities available in Windows 8. We also identify several compile-time errors you may encounter.
