    What are the differences between projects with different target platforms?

    When I create a new analytics project, I am asked for the target platform, but why?

    The only difference I see is the "Getting Started" page which provides the SDK download and sample syntax, etc.

    Are there any other differences to the generated reports for example?

    In creating a new project for a Windows desktop application that is composed of both managed and unmanaged code, are there any recommendations to the target platform to select?

    Can I use different SDKs (.NET and Win32) in the different components of my application that send data to the same analytics project without issue?

    Thank you.

    Hi Rami

    Sorry for the late reply.

    The reason that we ask for the platform is that, by knowing this, we can supply you some out of the box reports without you having to do anything. This is what you see in Environment under default data reports. Knowing the platform ahead helps us collecting and parsing the stuff correctly and also enables us to present different reports depending on the platform you are using.

    Using two monitors is not recommended but possible. You could not, however, make them report into the same project. You would have to make two projects. If the bulk of the functionality in your app lies in managed code I would recommend that you choose the .NET monitor. If not, i would recommend choosing win32 and call this from managed code as well using pinvoke.
