I am trying to develop an application for windows 8 application store and having a problem with that as I don't know where to start from. Can anyone help me?

The application must perform following these functions:

The application will track all other applications whether they ar desktop applications or web applications and will give these details for all applications:

  • Installed Date
  • Manufacturer
  • App type
  • Space used
  • Upgrade details etc.

Any answers are appreciated, thank you!

This is the WinRT API documentation:[^]

This is the list of Win32 and .NET API usable from an App store app:[^][^]

To summarize I don't think you can do that anyway, all WinRT are kind of "sand boxed" and have no access to the general file system or (direct access to) other apps...
