Unable to run app -The repository package damaged

    Question

  • Hi Guys

    Is a week that I try to solve this problem, but I can not. 
    When I create any project with Visual Studio 2013, and will launch it, I get the following error. 

    "Error 1 Error: DEP0600: During deployment occurred the following unexpected error: 
    Package repository damaged. "


    How do I solve it? 

    I already tried to uninstall and install , but I always get the same error. 

    Please help me

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • Hello,

    A "package repository damaged" error is usually unrecoverable. We have seen this error when the repository database is located on a bad disk sector. I would recommend that you check your event log. The error should be reported in the event log and should contain additional data about why the repository was not accessible.

    I hope this helps,

    James
