Not able to run metro style app


  • HI,  I have downloaded some Metro Style examples from MSDN.

    I have installed windows8 64 bit dev. preview.

    The machine is with no internet connection.

    WHen I run examples in VS studio 11,  it shows LOCK message and doesn't run app.


    If I connect the machine to internet, it says need credentials to run the app and doesn't take my machine account creditals.

    Pls. help.

  • Hey Kpra123,


    Since this computer has just connected to the Internet let's make sure that Windows Developer Preview has been activated. You can do this by:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Type Computer
    • Click Computer
    • Click System properties in the ribbon
    • Click View details in Windows Activation
    • Click the Activate online button if your Windows Developer Preview hasn't already been activated


    Once that process has finished, restart your computer and test to see if the same problem continues to occur.
