Unable to test, Error says can't locate Package.StoreAssociation.xml

Dec 19, 2012 at 11:10 PM

Good Evening All,

I'm very new to coding so I could be making a very simple error but everytime to try to run the app I receive the following error:
Error 4 File 'Package.StoreAssociation.xml' not found. C:\Users\Adam\Desktop\MetroPress\package.appxmanifest 1 1 MetroPress

I've tried running as Local Machine, Simulator and Debug but always the same message. I've double checked the Quick Start Guide and can't see I;ve missed any issues.

The file is there as I can Open within Visual Basic so unsure why the project cannot find when building the app.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Are you using Microsoft Visual Studio Professional to run the project? Try re-download the source and see if you can run it. You should be able to run it without any error right after you download it.

I'm using Visual Studio Express, but I've re-downloaded the latest source code and works fine now. :) Thank you.

Only issue I now have is with changing the appTitleImage, whenever I add a URL in their is fails to build. Do you need to enter it with any special characters?


Many Thanks,

Hi Adam,

1. Did you enter the full url with http://? 

2. Did you increase the localStorageSchemaVersion number in Line 6 under wpapi.js?

What error message did you get?

Hi Michael,

1. Yes enter the full URL, like so
 appTitleImage: http://www.16bits.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/16bitslogoBanner2.png

First Error I receive is:
JavaScript critical error at line 24, column 28 in ms-appx://metropress/js/wpapi.js SCRIPT1009: Expected '}'
And is also errors with this afterwards:
"Exception is about to be caught by JavaScript library code at line 13, column 13 in ms-appx://metropress/js/default.js
0x800a1391 - JavaScript runtime error: 'WPApi' is undefined
If there is a handler for this exception, the program may be safely continued."
Thanks for your help Michael.

Hi Adam,

You are having a javascript error and I believe that you didn't end your statement correctly.

your line should read.

appTitleImage: "http://www.16bits.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/16bitslogoBanner2.png",

Note that you need the double quote ", and the comma a the end of the line.

If that still doesn't work, please post part of your code here. Let me know.
