What is the executable file name on Windows Phone 8? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • 1. What is the executable file on Windows Phone 8? For example: we have .exe files on Windows Mobile phones.

    2. If we develop an app on Windows 8 using VS2012 Express edition, what executable file does it generate after successful compilation and build processes?

  • Windows Phone 8.0 & Windows Phone Silverlight 8.1 are dll's   

    Windows Phone 8.1 (non-Silverlight, aka universal apps) / Windows 8 / 8.1 are .exe that run in the sandbox.  Note, windows phone 8.1 (both flavors) / windows 8.1 require win8.1 and vs.net 2013
