Retarget app to Windows 8.1 in Visual Studio 2013

    Question

  • Hello,

    I wanted to upload an app to the store and installed an sdk and did what I have to do. After reboot, i got the following error:

    Cannot resolve 'Windows.metadata'.  Please install the Windows Software Development Kit. You can retarget your project to Windows 8.1. The Windows 8.1 SDK is installed with Visual Studio. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=278967&clcid=0x409 for more information on how to retarget your project

    *note* I get this error in EVERY project now, so I can't work on anything now! 

    So i did what was asked from me and re-installed the SDK. (i also followed the steps seen in the link provided by VS2013) Now i want to retarget my project to 8.1, only to see it already is in 8.1. Also, Visual studio 2013 doesn't give me the option to press retarget project  (also no greyed out texts or anything).

    Please help me solve this problem fast, since i'm unable to do anything now.

    Thanks in advance, 

    Rudi Jansen.
