Welcome to the reddit-Metro wiki!

FAQ

  • Do I have to have Windows 8 Developer Preview to run reddit Metro?

 Yes. reddit Metro will never support Windows 7 or any other OS. This is by design. Currently, Windows 8 Developer Preview is required to run all Windows 8 Metro apps.

  • Do I have to have the Windows 8 Dev Preview build that includes Visual Studio 11?

 Yes. Currently we don't have a way of packaging and distributing apps as Microsoft has not turned on the App Store yet. Once MS Turns on the App Store, I will be submitting reddit Metro at the lowest possible price (hopefully free). Until then, the VS11 Local Installer is the only supported method of installing Metro Apps.

  • Do you support feature X?

 see the front page. I will keep the readme updated to include the latest implemented features, and the planned features (if I know them) of the next official build.

  • Help! I can run other Metro UI apps, but I can't install/run reddit metro!

 Currently you must launch Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview (Express or Ultimate) at least once and install the developer license certificate when prompted on first launch. This installs the certificate repository that is required to install developer apps at this time in the Windows 8 Developer Preview. Hopefully we'll have a more elegant solution for the non-techies in Windows 8 Beta.

  • I can't get reddit metro or any Metro UI apps to work! What am I doing wrong?

 Check your resolution. Currently Metro UI apps required 1024 x 768 minimum resolution in order to run. Most older netbooks run at a resolution of 1024x600. There's no workaround at this time, and it's doubtful that these lower resolutions will ever be supported. They weren't officially supported to begin with in Windows 7, they just happened to work. So Microsoft has retained that moving forward for now. We'll have to wait until Beta to get a better idea if netbooks and other low resolution devices will get better support.
