Accessing the camera application on a Surface Pro 2 from a .net application. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an existing desktop application developed in vb.net (winform) that would, when a picture would be required, start a process to launch an external camera application to take a picture to later be consumed by the calling application.  This hasn't been an issue in the past (mostly win 7 tablets and laptops), but this method doesn't work on a Surface Pro.  Even manually trying to start camera app. (camera.exe) from file explorer is unsuccessful.  I'm guessing because the camera app is based in WinRT.  What forum would be the most appropriate to get an answer for this scenario?

    Thanks,

    Dave M.
