Is it possible to use Gart with Windows RT in tablets? Or is there any other corresponding framework for the purpose?

Currently it is not possible to use GART with WinRT because GART has a dependency on an XNA component which is not in WinRT (the Viewport class). I haven't had time to look into what it would take to recreate the code used from Viewport. If you are interested in looking into this modification please let me know.

Since this library uses Bing Maps you will need to reference the source code and not the binary dll. The reason for this is that Bing Maps will need to be compiled against each target platform separately. Simply download the source code and add a reference to the Win8 library of GART. Next try right clicking on the Win8 GART library and going to properties. In the window that opens go to the Build tab. Under "Conditional compilation symbols" add the following: X3D,WIN_RT
