Hi mutaware,
I believe you need to install win 8.1

Edit: or export app targeting VS2012 and open innthat version.michael2013-10-13 08:45:07
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

Hi,

I believe I should be able to load in vs 2013 (backward compatibility). I exported for Window 8.0 / vs 2012.

However Win 8.1 comes out next week, so I'll update.

You need VS2012 to export for Windows 8.0. Your bug report says you used VS2013, which is the wrong version.
