I’ve been upgrading some of my applications from VS2012 RC to RTM and have encountered the following error multiple times.
As you can see from the screenshot, the Package.appxmanifest just needs a quick update. Unfortunately, you cannot change these values through the User Interface. You can fix this easily by right-clicking on the Package.appxmanifest and opening it with an XML editor like shown below:
Scroll down to the section called “Prerequisites” and change it to look like the following:
<Prerequisites> <OSMinVersion>6.2.1</OSMinVersion> <OSMaxVersionTested>6.2.1</OSMaxVersionTested> </Prerequisites>That is it. I hope this helps.
Thanks for reading! You can download the Windows 8 Release Preview and VS2012 RC here if you don’t have access to the RTM bits yet. I’d also suggest checking out Telerik’s RadControls for Metro for some great Windows 8 components. If you have any questions or comments, then please leave them below.
