Cannot deploy blank app or any WinJS app after WinJS.1.0_1.0.9200.20602 update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    This morning I'm unable to deploy a previously working JS/HTML app with the following error:

    4>Updating the layout...
    4>Checking whether required frameworks are installed...
    4>Framework: Microsoft.WinJS.1.0/neutral, app package version 1.0.9200.20789 is not currently installed.
    4>Framework: Microsoft.VCLibs.110.00/x86, app package version 11.0.51106.1 is not currently installed.
    4>Installing missing frameworks...
    4>Error : DEP0800 : The required framework "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0\ExtensionSDKs\Microsoft.WinJS.1.0\1.0\Microsoft.WinJS.1.0.appx" failed to install. 
    4>error 0x80070002: While updating the Microsoft.WinJS.1.0_1.0.9200.20602_neutral__8wekyb3d8bbwe package, the system failed to register the windows.MRT extension due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified.

    This is post the VS2012 update including WinJS.1.0_1.0.9200.20602 and a reboot, rebuild, clean etc. Oddly if I remove the WinJS reference from the project it deploys, but then obviously falls over with WinJS being undefined.

    I'd be happy to rollback the update as we have a live deployment tomorrow :/ 

    Any ideas?

  • It sounds like your registry settings have gotten corrupted on the machine you are trying to deploy your app on for some reason. The "file not found" error is probably being returned due to a missing registry for the WinJS package SID. Is the problem happening only on one machine or multiple machines?

    If you need assistance resolving this issue soon, I would recommend you to open a case with support and that way the issue can be tracked faster. You can open up a case with your developer account by visiting: http://aka.ms/storesupport and choose "Technical support for Windows Store app development" to open a support case. You may already have incidents included with your Store subscription which you can use as support options.
