Windows RT support

Postby jefftiger » Thu Jul 05, 2012 5:51 pm

I wonder if there is any thought being given for Ad Muncher to support Windows RT? I'm intrigued with the forthcoming Microsoft Surface tablet, which will be available in Windows RT and Windows 8 versions. I have no idea if porting to Windows RT is a major effort?

It is indeed a major effort.

Completely different CPU architecture and restrictions.

It should work with Windows 8 Metro now at least with the Windows 8 Pro tablet! viewtopic.php?f=2&t=18214

indeed.

x86/x64 Windows 8 tablets will work just fine.

It's ARM based tablets (Windows RT) that require major work.

When you say x86/x64 do you mean excluding Metro?
Admuncher works on my Windows 8 Consumer Preview but only on the desktop browser. It does not work with the Metro browser.

for the metro browser on x86 you need to disable "Enhanced Protected Mode"

otherwise metro apps aren't allowed to connect locally where Ad Muncher is running.

Thanks, that did the trick.
Admuncher works just fine.
Now I can actually browse using the new full screen browser.

Should try it on the RTM version soon.

Just wanted to add a +2 to Windows RT support consideration as I now have two Surface RT devices in my house relegating two iPad 3 devices to paperweights.

As I use my Windows RT devices more and more while tethered to my mobile phone I'm more and more aware of how much real-estate on common newspaper websites (e.g. smh.com.au) is advertising which is slowing my browsing experience, forcing me to scroll more on a smaller screen device, and consuming precious mobile broadband data.

I would happily purchase additional licenses for a Windows RT version of Ad Muncher!
