We ask Windows 8 to re-open the settings when you click that button, but nothing happens. Not sure why it's not working. @thehen, any ideas?

Hi Ashley,
Just to let you know that the problem still persists in R126.

I just found a general exporter bug in r126. Take a look just in case this bug has something to do with it.

I is simply "cr.functionname" being replaced with "cr_functionname" in index.html, causing runtime exceptions.

@arcalaus - that is unrelated to the issue in this thread.

Good morning Ashley,

Any heads up on this - I have a game that's almost ready to release to the Store.....

Nope, no idea. We've always had code telling Windows 8 to re-open the charms panel when you click back, and Windows 8 ignores it for some reason. I'm not sure what we could change to try and fix this, since it's a single function call and it's not working.

Surely it's a minor issue that won't block you releasing?

Hi Ashley,

I agree it is a minor issue, but it does detract from typical Charms behaviour.

This has only started happening in recent releases of C2 - R119 and at least R122 worked fine.

So something has changed since then either with C2 or Windows8...

Perhaps you could query MS about it....

@Ashley I only just saw you'd tagged me - didn't notify me for some reason. I've added this to my investigate list. I noticed it works correctly in the Microsoft sample so something's amiss.

@Ashley
@thehen

The problem goes further:

If you click a hyper link to email or web the charms bar just closes and the link is ignored....
