Hello, I recently read the news that one independent developer managed to launch the Microsoft Store in Windows 7(https://windowsru.com/7/9k6v#comment-form), I have a question is it possible to make Windows universal applications work on this OS (Windows 7)?

Looks like a fake. He probably uses unity mode in vmware (notice the green frame around the window). It's also strange that the taskbar has two discord icons.

Backporting the stuff inside the system to do this would be far too hard for even the best we have serving the community today.

maybe is it possible to extract some files from Windows 10, then try to modify it some way. My question is, can that ExKernel be installed on any Windows 7? Or it requires a specific language.

Are there any instructions on how to compile the interim release? I am trying to help someone who must stay on Windows 7. Many thanks for any help.

Windows 7 does not support these API‘s. The UWP Platform depends on many factors. So, although it‘s soo cool that he ported the Store back to Windows 7, unfortunately he won‘t be able to install anything with it. Windows 7 doesn‘t even have Microsoft Accounts build in, so you won‘t be able to log-in the Store for certain apps. You may be able to download programs like Firefox or Audacity, since they‘re .exe files. 
 

I‘m curious if the dev could port that back to Windows 8.1 as well, as I think 8.1 is way more capable of running a newer Store and also needs a newer Store, since the old one literally has nothing left
