We have an elegant enterprise solution based upon using the peer channel features of .Net. After looking to upgrade to .Net 4.5, we realized that this is being removed without any alternative or explanation. We have spent a good deal of time and money implementing this solution.

Why not leave them in the .Net framework? Or at least move to a separate library downloadable from codeplex?

Thank you for your feedback and reporting this issue.

The System.Net.Peer* related classes have been deprecated. However, the current Windows Runtime APIs in Windows 8/8.1 have similar functionality and are very useful for peer-to-peer scenarios such as communication and gaming.

Is there any guidance or alternatives? We have mission critical software based on this technology. What was the reason for deprecating it?
