I went through a lot api's for windows phone 7 and couldnt find a single way to include my unmanaged code in it. Is there any way to do the same. If not why is it so ? Even in .net, microsoft allows unmanaged code to be included. Posted on Wednesday, September 7, 2011 1:31 PM | Back to top

to keep it independent of the hardware.

Main reason may be to ensure apps can't escape the sandbox. The constrained nature of the code target limits the ability to write malware and allows for better automated review of the code.

If I recall correctly it is possible to have non-managed code but only from Microsoft or OEM's. I think it has to be specially signed.
