Visual Studio 2012 - can`t run C++ blank example

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have successfully installed Visual Studio 2012 on Windows 8 Release Preview. I created a new project using the C++ Blank App (XAML).

    It builds ok, however whenever I try to run it, it breaks on the following code :

    void ::App2::App::InitializeComponent()
    {
    #if defined _DEBUG && !defined DISABLE_XAML_GENERATED_BREAK_ON_UNHANDLED_EXCEPTION
        UnhandledException += ref new Windows::UI::Xaml::UnhandledExceptionEventHandler(
            [](::Platform::Object^ sender, ::Windows::UI::Xaml::UnhandledExceptionEventArgs^ e)
            {
                (void)sender; // Unused parameter
                if (IsDebuggerPresent())
                {
                    ::Platform::String^ errorMessage = e->Message;
                    __debugbreak();
                }
            });
    #endif
    }

    I already asked the same question yesterday but I am not able to recover my previous account. If anyone finds my previous thread, please feel free to close it and consider this one instead.

  • You have incompatible versions here. To run the RTM version of Visual Studio 2012 you need to have the RTM version of Windows 8. You cannot run Visual Studio RTM on the Windows 8 Release Preview.

  • Are you using Windows 8 RTM and Visual Studio 2012 RTM?
