Error when deploying metro app in VS 2012 RC - error 0x80004004 : "Following App need to be closed...."
Wednesday, August 08, 2012 12:49 PM
i am not able to deploy (debug locally) my test app in VS 2012 RC and encounter this problem -
>error 0x80004004: Unable to install because the following apps need to be closed App.af1899502.a60bd.a42f2.aad65.a27b36c93a549_8wekyb3d8bbwe!Designer.App.
Here is how it happens
i have two test projects open - projA , projB
Deploy projA and stop the debugging session and then come back to projB and try deploy.
Deploying projA always works but when i try deploying and other project it fails with said error.
the projA that is deployed and launched is closed correctly.
could some one please let me know how to get this working?

What kind of projects you are working now? Are you working with Windows 8-style test apps? And would you mind sending me one sample project for reproducing it?

Try if changing id in manifest file helps in resolving this issue. Open package.manifest file of project and in last tab change any char of guid.
If that doesn't help please share more details about your project.
