Application didnt start.

    Question

  • I have just downloaded Windows 8 pro and now my app wont run.

    It worked fine under the RTM version.

    Unable to activate windows store app.

    The process started but the activation request failed. with error

    "Application didn't start"

    The app compiles fine.

    Just out of interest I made a basic c++ app from the templates and this comes up with the same error.

  • I found my Windows 8 hadn't installed properly.

    Not one Windows 8 app would run !!!!

    I did a PC refresh from my backup DVD and it works fine now.

    Sounds like a major booboo on Microsoft's part if you cant upgrade correctly from an upgrade package.

  • I tried a c# template and that runs fine.

    The two that wouldn't run are c++ apps.
