In Windows RT, I can set an image source to a file in the project like this:
image.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri("ms-appx:///Images/Koala.jpg"));
Is it possible to set the Uri to a file in another project in the solution? In Silverlight, I was able to do something like this for a image in a different project named CommonLibrary.
img.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri("/CommonLibrary;component/Images/Koala.jpg", UriKind.Relative));
Is there something equivalent I can use in Windows RT?

in windows store apps, you could use ms-appx:///,
firstly, you could add CommonLibrary reference into your project, and then set image source:
image.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri("ms-appx:///CommonLibrary/Images/Koala.jpg"));

Thanks, it worked. However, I could only make it work if I put the image files in a Windows Store Class Library project. It isn't working if I use a Portable Class Library project. I want to use a Portable Class Library project that can be accessed from both a Windows Store project and a Windows Phone 8 project.
I'll mark this answered and start a new thread concerning sharing files between WP8 and Win8 projects.
