WACK hangs on "Validating app..."

    Question

  • Hi

    I am trying to run the WACK tool on my fairly simple RSS reader project, but it always ends up hanging on the step "Validating app...". I have had it running for hours, but it never finishes. The dialog looks like this:

    I have tried to use Process Explorer from Sysinternals to see what's happening. For the first ~5 minutes, I can see that it starts and stops various processes. Then, it ends in a steady state which looks like this:

    The only way to stop the process, is to kill it.
    I have tried to restart my PC, and I have downloaded the latest SDK and VS2012 updates.

    Any tips on how to investigate this further, or resolve the issue?

    Thank you!
