Windows Sample App Error in designer

    Question

  • I am trying to build a hello world app in VS2012 Express installed on Windows 8 release preview. I am getting the following error in designer mode

    System.Exception
    Package failed updates, dependency or conflict validation. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80073CF3)
       at Microsoft.Expression.HostUtility.Platform.AppContainerProcessDomainFactory.CreateDesignerProcess(String applicationPath, String clientPort, Uri hostUri, IDictionary environmentVariables, Int32& processId, Object& processData)

       at System.Threading.Tasks.Task`1.InnerInvoke()
       at System.Threading.Tasks.Task.Execute()

    The app builds successfully however when I try to deploy it gives following error.

    Error : DEP0700 : Registration of the app failed. Windows cannot install package HelloWorld1 because this package requires a higher Windows version. The package requested Windows version 6.2 with AppModel version 1, while the current Windows version is 6.2 with AppModel version 0. (0x80073cfd)

  • The version of VS2012 is compatible with Windows 8 RP?

  • I am having the same problem in VS 2012 in Win8 RTM for Windows Store app.


    Steps of reproduction:

    • Launch VS Ultimate 2012.
    • File > New > Project > C# or Visual Basic > Windows Store > Blank App (XAML)
    • Open MainPage.xaml or App.xaml
    • Click Design mode. And you will see this error
    • Right click MainPage.xaml or App.xaml
    • Click Blend. And you will find the same error in Expression Blend.


    Please tell me if you have found any solution yet?
