Can't Distribute Metro Sample App

    Question

  • Hi, I made a Metro app for a sample tutorial I am writing.  However, when I zip up the source code and project, upload it to my website, and then download and extract the .zip of the project, I cannot get it to execute (it compiles and builds fine) when running from VS11 express beta.  I get some deployment error:

    System.IO.Path.CheckInvalidPathChars then stuff having to do with AppxLayoutManager and RegisterAppxLayout.Start. 

    I have downloaded some samples from MS, so I know you can distribute Metro source code and projects.  Is there some project setting I need to check?

  • Hi

    If you create a very simple metro style app, will you get the same errors? And the detailed error messages? It is better if you can provide us the detailed steps how to reproduce it.
