Windows 8 push notifications

Apparently, references to Windows Push Notifications have also been discovered in various DLLs:

  • wpnapps.dll “Windows Push Notification Apps”
  • wpncore.dll “Windows Push Notification Core”
  • wpnprv.dll “Windows Push Notification Platform Connection Provider”

At this point, it’s not really clear how these notifications will work.

There are also a number of references to toasts and tiles, indicating that Microsoft may be implementing a combination of pop-up toasts and tile based notifications in its push system.
