Exception when trying to debug Metro style apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried different versions of Windows 8 (x86, x64) and VS2012 all of which I just downloaded from MSDN and I can't debug any Metro apps.  A brand new blank project throws this exception, though all is well launching without the debugger attached.

    I'm running this in a VirtualBox VM, others are able to do this successfully.

    Other projects types work just fine, MVC, console, etc - just not Metro apps.  Any ideas?
