A Bridge Too Far

by James Forshaw, Google

In Windows 10 Anniversary Edition, Microsoft introduced Desktop Bridge, originally known as Project Centennial. This technology allows normal Win32 applications to be converted to run as self-contained Windows Store applications, redirecting file and registry access to allow the application to easily be uninstalled leaving no remaining footprint. To support Desktop Bridge, Microsoft had to change a number of different parts of the OS including the Kernel and system services.
 
This presentation will be an in-depth look at how Desktop Bridge works as well as a look at some of the bugs I've discovered in the various components which make up the technology.
