    GUI version of it also doesn't open anymore!

    It's really so hard to develop&learn for Windows 8 in these situations.

  • Please try the following:

    - Brows to %userprofile%\appdata\Local\Microsoft\AppCertKit folder

    - Delete *.*

    - If any file in this folder is locked then use Process Explorer to see which process is holding it, kill that process to delete the file

    - Launch Windows App Certification Kit from the start screen

  • When i delete the contents of the folder, it no longer fails at the beginning. But on the "Logging results" step, CertKit fails without any details and it exits. I have to delete the contents again to run the validation process again..

    Even trying to validate existing applications fail in the same way.. I have to look into the certkit folder to inspect files manually.

    Why can't i complete validation of anything?
