Package.appxmanifest in Windows Runtime Component project

    Question

  • Following through the "Quickstart: Update a live tile from a background task" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/xaml/jj991805.aspxI've created a project from Windows Runtime Component template. Half way through the article, it asked to edit package.appxmanifest. However, the project template does not contain such a file. There is no template for appxmanifest in Add New Item. 

    Do I have to manually create the xml appxmanifest or I'm missing any steps?

  • You'll set that up in the host project's appxmanifest.

    Windows Runtime Components do not have their own app packages. They are included in other packages which use the component.
