BREAKING NEWS: Technet Wiki Widget launched on Windows 8 Store!

As XAML_Guy mentioned in comment on yesterday’s blog post: we’ve got some great news for you.


XAML_Guy: “I am pleased to announce that as of today, TechNet Wiki Widget passed certification and is now listed in the Windows Store. Just search the Marketplace for “TechNet”.

Needs some work (missing store logo) but at least it’s out JUST in time for W8 launch! :D”


You need proof of evidence?

Then hit the search icon (or enter)

When you click on it, you’ll get some more details:

Good job, XAML_Guy!

  1. I love how the images tell the search "story" in this blog post!

  2. I didn't find it on Store … Is that because I'm in Brazil?

  3. Caio, I sent this question to Pete/XAML Guy. Thanks!

    Hi Caio, thank you for your interest in the Widget and your time to let me know there is a problem.

    Sorry for not seeing your question sooner.

    Last weekend I finally upgraded to a Windows 8 phone (Nokia 920, yey me) and also found the App wasn't available there either D:

    I have had some time tonight to investigate what is happening and there were two problems. One that I rectified tonight, and another more frustrating but interesting twist to the whole story. So this is to be the subject of my slot in wiki ninja blog tomorrow. I very much hope you can wait another day to hear all about it, because I also hope you will be able to help!

    Thanks and sorry again.
