Debugging WinStore - Specified App Package FullName does not exist

    Question

  • I am trying to debug WinStore.

    I am following all the steps as defined in "attach the debugger to a Windows Store app" (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh771032(v=vs.110).aspx) and it works fine for all the application (news, photo, etc.)

     

    when I try to do the same for WinStore app it doesn't work.

    in the powershell dubbagle Manager I get the following error: Specified App Package FullName does not exist please refer below for all the command I issued.

    I also notice that the Store app is not listed in the Visual Studio -> Debug -> Debug Installed Apps Package -> Installed App Packages

    Any help is much appreciated.

     

    PS C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\Remote Debugger\App
    x> Get-AppxPackage | Where-Object {$_.Name -like "*store*" }
