Hello everybody,
I have this application that launches wpf windows in the interactive desktop(via interactive services detection service pop-up).Everything works fine on windows 7.Trying the application on a windows 8 tablet results in having a black sreen instead of the wpf window.the moment you accept the message when the pop-up dialog pops up, you get the black screen.
The tablet has Atom processor and runs a windows 8 32bits version.
Any ideas what could be the cause? Please help.

I found the solution to this.
It seems that my tablet can't render WPF UIs using hardware acceleration, so you have to turn it off.
In my case i can do this via code because i'm using .Net framework 4.0.
The instruction is
RenderOptions.ProcessRenderMode = System.Windows.Interop.RenderMode.SoftwareOnly;

Keep the good work going everyone :),
