      I tried to add the "LocationTracking" to WMAppManifest.xml, but neither the code that I think was shown:

      <BackgroundExecution>
      <ExecutionType Name="LocationTracking" />
      </BackgroundExecution>

      None of the following would work either:

      <BackgroundExecution>
      <ExecutionTypeName="LocationTracking" />
      </BackgroundExecution>

      <ExtendedTask>
      <ExecutionTypeName="LocationTracking" />
      </ExtendedTask>

      <ExtendedTask>
      <ExecutionType Name="LocationTracking" />
      </ExtendedTask>
