Please clarify about error, "winmdexp.exe" exited with code -532462766.

    Question

  • Hello,

    When I trying to build our Metro App in ARM, Release configuration with ARM displays following error.

    Error 103 "winmdexp.exe" exited with code -532462766. BackgroundTask

    However, Debug configuration with ARM or Release/Debug with x86/x64 is working fine.

    I searched about above error but I am afraid that I could not find any.

    Please let me know what is the meaning of the above error and how can I resolve the error.

    Thanks in advance

  • I experienced this error when building a C# WinRT component whose AssemblyVersion attribute had a major or minor version greater than 255, e.g. [assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.256.0.0")]
