Package not getting installed Migration from Release preview to RTM.


  • Hi Jeff,

    I had an Application which was working fine in Release Preview. But when I migrated it from Release preview to RTM it is showing some kind of error.

    I complied my application in the RTM visual studio and followed the guidelines as per the Migration document.

    Execution Policy Change
    The execution policy helps protect you from scripts that you do not trust. Changing the execution policy might expose
    you to the security risks described in the about_Execution_Policies help topic at
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=135170. Do you want to change the execution policy?

  • Not sure if you are running into the same problem we did, but we found out that the version of the Visual C++ Runtime included with Visual Studio 2012 is different than the version in a base Windows 8 installation.  Go figure.  That was causing issues with our deploy when we moved to RTM, even though they tell you to include the runtime as a reference in your project just in case.  See if it works if you remove it.
