Can't test windows 8 apps on Windows Surface RT (ARM) ??

    Question

  • Hi everybody,

    The history:
    My App is in the store for several months now (x64 & x86 only) - so there is already
    a full store association in place.

    Now i compiled the App as ARM - seems all fine so far. I then downloaded and setup the 
    remote debugger on the Target Machine. I succeeded in deploying and remotely debugging 
    a newly created Direct3DApp (from the templates).

    But when i try this with my App it fails. I'm quite sure it's something about all
    these licenses / store associations or so. Oh yes, of course i also installed a 
    developer license on the target machine.

    This is the error that is in the EventVwr's log on the target machine:

    Activation of the app CD01AB34.SunAge_kwmcxzszfer2y!App for the Windows.Launch contract was blocked with error 0x80073CFC because of an issue with application binary sunage_win8.exe. This could be because the binary is unsigned, contains an untrusted signature, or has been corrupted or tampered with. Reinstall the application to fix this issue.

    Please help - i've been fiddling with this all day,
    Roman

  • Solved the problem: The linker setting Base-Address was set to 0x80000000.

    I removed that setting - so it takes the defaults - now it works just fine...

  • So maybe you can answer this questions for me.

    Is the only way to develop Windows RT apps with Visual Studio 2012? Is there no other compiler that will allow you to create RT apps?

    Thanks!
