App capabilities


Call this method to initiate the standard workflow to bring an app that is in the suspended state back to the active state. This workflow includes calling the app’s Resuming callback.

This method will return as soon as it has initiated the workflow, before the app’s Resuming callback, and before any state changes.

Calling this method on an app that is not suspended will result in a failure.

This method won’t work on ResourceGroups that relate to background tasks because they don’t have the concept of suspend/resume.

This method won’t work on Desktop Bridge apps because they don’t have the concept of suspend/resume.
