  • Hi,

    What type of machine are you using for this? If you are debugging on an ARM device,
    this is not supported in Visual Studio. Have a look at the page about running Windows 8 apps on remote machines

    And then see creating an app package: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh975357

    Best Wishes!
