C++ Metro Application/DirectX Access Is Denied when loading a file RRS feed

  • Question

  • So just got this developer preview of VS11 express and running on the development preview of windows 8 trying to create a metro style c++ sound application. works great when using the samples provided (Groove). But when I am trying to load my own file I just get access is denied. I set all the capabilities in the manifest file that are available, still access denied. I move the file in to the project, set that is the part of the content. Still Access denied.

    BTW i can play it fine in media player. Ok it is a development preview but this is a basic thing that does not work. And BTW I never got a windows that asked me to allow the application to use my documents folder when I set that option in the manifest file.

  • Could you point me to the SDK sample you were using? If it wasn't a sample, could you post the snippet of code where the Access Denied error occurs as well as the relevant manifest capabilities (right-click the manifest in Solution Explorer and select View Code). It would help to know the file type and where the file is located for me to try to repro the error.
