[W8.1]Deploying app with brokered component in physical device RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing an app using brokered components, using the Microsoft templates (https://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/527286e4-b06a-4234-adde-d313c9c3c23e) and following this step-by-step (http://blogs.u2u.be/diederik/post/2014/04/25/Building-Enterprise-apps-using-Brokered-Windows-Runtime-Components.aspx).

    The reason of my problem is that I can execute/deploy the app without problems in local machine and in windows simulator, but when I deploy the app in a device it breaks with a TargetInvocationException

    Description of the error:

    Requested Windows Runtime type 'MyNamespace.PrintService' is not registered

    I get the error in my ViewModelLocator, in the line of code of the getter of the ViewModel which uses the brokered component:

        public SettingsViewModel Settings
            get { return ServiceLocator.Current.GetInstance<SettingsViewModel>(); }

    The ViewModelLocator is an standard MVVM Light view model locator.

    Here is the source code of my SettingsViewModel where I inject the brokered component:

        public class SettingsViewModel
            public SettingsViewModel(IPrintService printService)
                if (printService == null)
                    throw new ArgumentNullException("printService");
                _printService = printService;

  • Hi Francisco,

    Simply guess, I did not see your register code, perhaps you should add following code into your ViewModelLocator by register the SettingViewModel:
