Hi everybody,

I'm developping a Windows Store App which is at the moment on x86 platform,

but my question is, will my application work on every devices with different CPU architecture?

I guess not, especially for devices with ARM CPU, so in this case will I have to build 2 packages with one with x86 architecture and another with ARM architecture?

And finally I guess x86 app will work on x64 platform, isn't it?

Thank you for reading my question.

It depends on the language you are using.

JavaScript and .Net apps can be built to run on AnyCPU.

If you have native components they will need to be architecture specific.
