Code Writer is a great app. If ActiPro could add compilers of C++, C, Java, etc., so it could become better.

Hi Adnan,

While we'd love to, we are somewhat limited by what we can do within the app itself since Windows 8 apps are sandboxed by Microsoft.  This means we can't run any executables, etc.

Calling into third-party web services to do compiling might be an option though.  And of course we could consider any other ideas you have.

Well, there are many free and open source compilers, like GCC. An option to send the code to the compiler can do the trick!

Hi Adnan,

The problem again is how to even call the compiler.  Windows 8 apps are sandboxed and we cannot run any executables or dynamically load code.
