  • In visual studio and I assume it is the same in express if you expand where you see properties you will see the manifest file.  When you double click to open the file in the solution explorer you will see the designer.

  • This is to confirm that Designer for manifest (WMAppManifest.xaml) file was/is not available in Visual Studio Express 2010 for Windows Phone.

    The XML is pretty straight forward and you can manually edit that. This will help,
