    Ad's in program on Win8

    Fairly certain this in right section, I didn't really want to post it in any other category since it wasn't really a coding question.

    Is there any other or better program then implementing the Microsoft Advertising SDK.


    I am working on a turn-based game and would like to display some AD's after the turn has been played.

    As far as I know it only works for "Store applets." I.e. it comes in various flavors for the multitude of versions of WinPhone and WinRT but not for desktop applications.

    You saying there is no alternatives to the Microsoft Advertisement SDK?

    I was saying Microsoft's SDK only works for WinPhone & WinRT fart apps. So by extension anything would be better.

    As far as I know such advertising usually involves some sort of control that can render small HTML pages or HTML body fragments, probably also implementing HTTP fetch. The hosting application would point the control at some URL that either returned HTML from a rotation of advertising pages or a redirect to the HTML ad page. I assume part of the "fetch" operation passes an ID value so that your account gets credited for any clicks on the ad.


    But the facts of life are that the "eyeballs" are effectively all mobile and to a diminshing extent web users now. Finding an ad provider for desktop applications might be rough.
