Universal AppStudio project won't work in Visual Studio Express 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've started a new project on AppStudio, since I'm a real beginner on Windows and I wanted I fast way to get a feeling of how a basic universal app project works.

    I have downloaded the source code from the AppStudio web Platform and started it in VSE 2013, but as soon as I try to run it on my machine (or on the simulator), I get this error (I'm translating it):

    Exception of first-chance of type 'Windows.UI.Xaml.Markup.XamlParseException' in AppStudio.exe

    Information WinRT: E_UNKNOWN_ERROR [Line: 38 Position: 21]

    Exception first-chance of type 'System.Exception' in AppStudio.exe

    Program '[3004] AppStudio.exe' has been terminated with code -1 (0xffffffff).

  • Can you create a new universal app in visual studio express 2013 update 2 and have it run?  If that works try regenerating the app and download the source code again.
