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

    <ExecutionType Name="LocationTracking" />

    None of the following would work either:

    <ExecutionTypeName="LocationTracking" />

    <ExecutionTypeName="LocationTracking" />

    <ExecutionType Name="LocationTracking" />
