Loupe and UWP?

I was wondering if Loupe works with UWP apps? Has anyone tested converting a Loupe-enabled application using the UWP bridge?

It seems MS might eventually force us to move to UWP…

Is Gibraltar volunteering to test ‘the bridge’ with Loupe Desktop and share the conversion results?

We'll take a look at that;  As for official plans we are starting a port of Loupe to .NET Core targeting .NET Standard 2.0 which is supposed to also provide support for UWP applications.  I don't have a timeline on that one yet as the efforts are just getting underway.

Any news on this update?

In fact we're finishing up a basic agent for .NET Core and will soon have it ready for testing to enable UWP applications and others.  We're also going to try out some options for Loupe Desktop, but of course our current WinForms app isn't very amenable to that..

The UWP is a converter to 'package' winforms application into a UWP app. Converting Loupe Desktop would be a good test project.

Given that nearly all Loupe Desktop users also run Visual Studio I think we're safe in terms of having *it* run as a UWP app, although we are watching that space.  If we were to invest in big architectural changes for Desktop the driver would likely be adding support for Linux & MacOS.
