  • Hello,

    when do you get the above error message?  Does it happen with a new metro application or metro sample?  If we can get some repro steps, then we can determine whether this is fixed in a future builds of Visual Studio.

    much appreciated,

    mike

  • Same problem here. it was working one minute and then the next I get that error on all of my xaml pages in design view. Very frustrating especially since I just ran the program, stopped it, walked away, came back and voila... it no longer works.

    I have as of this date the latest Windows 8 Enterprise & Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate

  • I have the same error: Is there a solution out there?

    I am running Windows 8 64bit Pro with VS2012 Premium

    Error	1	Error : DEP0700 : Registration of the app failed. An internal error occurred with error 0x80073D05. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=235160 for help diagnosing app deployment issues. (0x80073cf6)

  • Checking http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh973484.aspx indicated to search the Check the AppXDeployment-Server event log for more info.

    Probably the error is generated because a file that is in use when the system tries to deploy the new package.

    In my case I was able to work around it by going to the appmanifest and changing the App minor version number of the package.

  • I resolved the issue by manually deleting the app directory inside the AppData folder
