Critical stopshower in Win8 store app development

Every upgrade from Microsoft is a nightmare! more or less...

I'm currently investgating the possibility of making a Windows 8 Metro version of my IP CAM Controller app. And what it turns out is not so pretty. Some developer already found out the issue a while back this year:


I'm encounterring the same and it's much much worse in my case, because what I'm dealing with is a bunch of HTTP servers implemented by various manufacturers that don't give a shit about Windows 8's world and they have their reasons - this has been working all the time, why just win8 can't?

Without enabling the useUnsafeHeaderParsing somehow, I don't think we can make any IP camera app unless we write our own HTTP component with raw socket, but Microsoft really expect us to do that? seriously?
