problems running windows app certification kit

    Question

  • I am trying to run the windows app cert kit and following the steps found online and never get past step 2.  The Kit never finds any applications installed?  Any suggestions on how to get the Kit to recognize the applications?

    Instructions

              Validate your Windows Store app by using the Windows App Certification Kit interactively        

    1.                   From the Start menu, search Apps, find Windows Kits, and click Windows App Cert Kit.                

    2.               From the Windows App Certification Kit, select Validate a Windows Store app.            

                    The Windows App Certification Kit lists all the Windows Store apps that you have deployed on your computer.

    Prerequisites

      •             You must install and run Windows 8.

      •             You must install the latest version of the Windows App Certification Kit, which is included in the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows 8.

        Note  Because it is frequently recommended that you test your app on Windows RT, be sure to also install the Windows App Certification Kit for Windows RT (available as a separate download for Windows RT devices).

      •             You must have a valid developer license for your computer.

      •             You must deploy the Windows Store app that you want to  test to your computer.

        Note  If you're using Visual Studio, you can run the Windows App Certification Kit when you create your app package. See Creating an app package to learn how.
