AppStudio Windows 8.1 Apps not loading external content RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've developed a couple AppStudio apps that load content from a public web server. The Windows Phone edition of the app loads the content nicely. The Windows 8.1 app does not.   I will get to the bottom of it, but figured someone else might have seen this behavior, maybe save me some digging in the source code...  couldn't hurt to ask.  :)  Thanks in advance.

  • Ok... didn't take long to figure out my own issue here. The server I'm trying to get content from is in the network I'm developing from.  Digging on an "Unable to connect to the remote server. hresult=   -2146233088, I realized there's a Capability I need to grant in the Package.appxmanifest to get content from my own network...  "Private Networks (Client & Server)"...   As generated, the app will work anywhere except where I typically test it.  :)
