  • Song/Roy - Your answer is partially incorrect actually and I think you may be misunderstanding the question.

    Amit - you're asking for an automated build of your Windows 8 App, correct? If so, you can't actually use Ant as that is for Java, however you can use NAnt (.NET version of Ant) and custom NAnt tasks to create your build. All you really need to do is call MSBUILD on your project file and it will create a package for you. See this thread for the general idea: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winappswithcsharp/thread/165fa571-bdad-4624-9c4b-d1701ea25f56

    Note: You cannot create a package for upload to the store via the command line. You can really only create a package meant for testing from the command line and thus if you're looking to automated your store package creation, it seems that currently you cannot.
