How do I find the image that's too large to edit it? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that App Studio is going away in a few days. My 2 apps were both written for Windows 8.1. About 2 months ago I migrated them to Windows 10 projects in App Studio. Now I'm trying to get them published so that I can download the project source code. But I'm getting stumped with things like this:

    So, I get that there's "an image" that's too large. Perhaps more than 1. But how about a hint as to which one(s) are too large? And how about actually being able to get to them so I can edit them, to make them smaller?? I don't know how to get to any of the files that I uploaded over a year ago when I made these projects Windows 8.1 projects. I've tried for over an hour to find a way, any way at all, to actually see what files are in this project so I can edit it with some image editing software to reduce the resolution, make the number of pixels less, do whatever it takes, but after an hour I just don't actually see how I can get to any of the files in App Studio.

    Please help.

  • Hi Rod,

    You could directly generate source code and open it up in Visual Studio to edit or add a new image to your project.

    To generate package for Store submission, you could follow Package UWP apps and publish it.

    Hi Matthew,

    Thank you for your response. How do I directly generate the source code from App Studio? It won't let me unless I generate the app. But that's the problem, I'm caught in a catch-22 situation. It won't generate the app, because of a graphic being too large. But App Studio hides that from the user, so I can't change it. I can't download the source code to work on it in Visual Studio because it won't let me until I generate the app. Around and around I go, but ultimately getting no where with it. I just want to get the source code out of App Studio, but running into the wall as I've described.

  • Hi Rod,

    After you click finish and generate button, you don't need to turn on the package generation switch. Just click "Generate" directly, and then only the source code of your project will be created:

  • I seem to not be able to do anything but click on the Last Generation number. That takes me to a page that doesn't allow me to do anything at all with it, except tell me I need Visual Studio 2015 Community Edition. 

    Please see below:
