Hi All,


I'm building a Windows 8 App which is outside of Windows Store. Here I wish to receive notifications using WNS. I have a Publisher which will generate events based on the user action on UI (Ex: Like Uploading a file, Once file upload is completed the event will be generated). I created a internal WCF Service(End Point) which will subscribe to the publisher and listens to the notifications sent by the Publisher. I'm integrating my Listener to WNS service in turn, once notifications are received by the listener, in turn will be sent to WNS Service to process and deliver to specific Device.

Here my question is in order to avail WNS service , do I need to keep my app in Windows Store ?? Is it mandatory ???

And Is their any way to implement push notifications in Windows 8 without using WNS Service????

Please clarify me on this.

Any help is appreciated

Yes, in order to get a GUID for the app that WNS will recognize, you'll need to have the app in the Store.

I can ask around inside of Microsoft.
