Windows 10 Cloud’s UWP Walled Garden Crumbles, Allowing Win32 Apps to Run
Microsoft hasn’t even officially announcedwindows 10 Cloud, but the new operating system has already been “hacked” to add functionality that isn’t officially sanctioned. For those that need a refresher, Windows 10 Cloud is a new variant of Microsoft’s current consumer operating system that will only allow you to install Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps from the Windows Store

.

According to Microsoft’s own wording in Windows 10 Cloud , “This version of Windows was made to help protect you and your device by exclusively running Windows Store apps.”

This walled garden approach, however, has been bypassed to allow Win32 apps to be installed and executed. After all, Windows 10 Cloud is still derived froth same codebase as other Windows 10 variants, so it was probably relatively trivial forTwitter user @never_released to find the secret to unlocking the functionality.

@never_released is not revealing his method for bypassing Windows 10 Cloud’s defenses just yet, but he’s probably trying to not show his hand this early in the game. If he were to reveal the exploit, it’s likely that Microsoft would have it patched up before the operating system is officially released.

However, once Microsoft does officially launch Windows 10 Cloud, all bets are off. With that being said, we seriously doubt that the audience that would be purchasing devices with Windows 10 Cloud installed ― namely a similar demographic to those who might purchaseGoogle Chromebooks ― would be all that interested in mucking around with the inner workings of the operating system to unlock functionality. And enthusiasts either have already moved over toWindows 10 or wouldn’t be interested in a neutered version of Windows in the first place.
