Migrating Release Preview apps to Windows 8 RTM

All replies

  • Uhmm, Rob, this docx is not readable with Win8 RTM board tools like WordPad (only shows the first page). How are we supposed to read this docx? It opens in Office 2013 but has a lot of rendering issues.

  • If you don't have word installed you can grab the latest Word Viewer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891090

  • The document, you are talking of, only has a first page. So it wouldn't help you. But you can migrate your app using the same way you did vom release preview to consumer preview.

  • Hi Dragon,

    The document has multiple pages.  If you are having trouble viewing it, you can use the Word Viewer: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891090

  • Jeff, of course, we could install a word viewer. But why is the doc not readable with out-of-the-box apps installed on a Win8 RTM in the first place? What special formatting tricks prevent it from being displayed? Its not that it contains complex layout or something like that.

    Would not have hurt MSFT to make it a PDF instead, at least that would be readable with the already installed "Reader" app.

  • I cannot answer that.  Sorry.
