Recently, we are using OpenCV face detection and face tracking, under Windows 8 RT platform. So far, there are some Windows 8 certification issues. Quite a number of modifications are needed, to make the final piece of software able to pass Windows 8 certification test, and submit it to Windows App Store. Here are some modifications which I had made.

Thing works pretty fine right now. We able to produce a piece of software which runs on x86 and x64 platforms. Here is the software if you ask : (Vote if you like :)

But, we are not able to make it works under ARM platform. This is because, we fail to compile a copy of OpenCV for ARM platform. This is due to

Any plan for OpenCV team to produce a binary copy, which is available on Windows 8 RT ARM platform?

Sorry. Never try to load an image from file so far in Windows 8. But, I manage to write image to file in Windows. Please refer to Hope it helps. You're right. imread and imwrite both are not workable in Windows 8.
