Error: DEP0800 required framework failed to install

    Question

  • Hi,

    I'm facing a problem with trying to deploy any app in release mode. I've seen some similar threads, but didn't find a real solution for this problem.

    Error : DEP0800 : The required framework "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.0\ExtensionSDKs\Microsoft.VCLibs\11.0\.\AppX\Retail\x86\Microsoft.VCLibs.x86.11.00.appx" failed to install.
    error 0x3: Creating the package metadata directory C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.VCLibs.110.00_11.0.50727.1_x86__8wekyb3d8bbwe\microsoft.system.package.metadata failed. 

    When deploying an app in debug it works fine. It doesn't matter what app I take even Microsoft samples show the same behavior.

    Environment: Windows 8 Enterprise 32 Bit+ Visual Studio Professional

    The WindowsApps directory seams to be guarded by the system so I can't check whats going on.

    If anybody could give me a hint. Would greatly appreciate it.

    Thx
