    Bob I love your work you are the greatest. Because of these tutorials my skills with XAML and C# have greatly improved. I am currently working on my first WP app with these guidelines. Thanks.

    dzaggiel : you need the last version of Visual Studio UpDate 2. Try to UpDate your's RC version to the last one. It will works :D

    MainPage.xaml.cs*

    it loads 

    MainPage.xaml.cpp

    and then the code won't work, where have I gone wrong?

    I'm using;

    Visual Studio Pro 2013

    @Manjot Singh @Paul and @Doug :

    I had lot of problems with the emulator too.
    I sugguest you to look for information in this page:
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsphone/develop/jj863509(v=vs.105).aspx


    If you do all the tests and the emulator still doesn't work even if it should, then try to upgrade your BIOS, I solved the problem in this way.

    @Bb Tabor : I'm folliwing your series with great entusiasm, thank you very much!

    ps: good re-style :P

    I cant seem to get the emulator to boot up when I debug. The deploy starts but never starts building thin solution. The output window only shows
    1>------ Deploy started: Project: HelloWorld, Configuration: Debug Any CPU ------
    I have confirmed that the emulators are running in Hyper-V. Also I don't get any errors, it just never builds????

    The emulator boots up now, however now I am getting this error.
    Windows Phone Emulator cannot connect to Windows Phone OS

    It seems to be an issue with the firewall. Every time I turn off the Firewall it works. Has anyone run into this problem? I am using Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.4013.4013. If anyone knows how to create the proper exception for the emulator please let me know. Its a pain to have to start and stop my firewall.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Bob again a very good series of lessons. Unfortunately some parts of this series (parts 2,4,5,10,23,24,26,29) are not available in high quality mp4. Did I miss some links? 

    Thanks in advance.

    I have had problems running the emulator and after hours of googling, looking at posts on the subject etc., it turns out my cpu is not SLAT based. This is essential in order to get the 8.1 emulator to work on your machine.

    You can find out if your machine supports SLAT by downloading Core info from here https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc835722.aspx

    Follow the website instructions and you will be able to find out in five minutes wether or not you will be able to use the emulator with your machine.

    I cannot, so am instead choosing device (after dev unlocking it) to run my debug previews.

    Hope this helps

    Ok i have been at this for 3 days now. I have updated VS express for windows desktop and no windows phone options anywhere in it. I installed VS for windows it had the option for windows phone ,but no user interface to drag buttons onto in that version. Plus it did not give me the option to choose the version of windows phone. I have tried everything i know how and that people on several forums have suggested and nothing works. I really want to learn to make WP apps,but can't. Thanks anyone who can help.

    Sir,
    I am using VISUAL STUDIO 2013 on my WINDOWS 8.1 OS.
    Following problem is occuring while running my project through emulator.
    My PC's processor supports SLAT and HARDWARE VIRTUALISATION too.

    "Windows Phone Emulator requires Hyper-V.Your computer is missing the following pre-requisites required to run Hyper-V:

              -Windows 8 professional (64 bit)"

    I would be very thankful to you if you give me a way to solve this problem

    Great vid! Could I use my actual Windows Phone as a method of debugging my Windows Phone app? If so, how would I go about configuring this in VS?

    Hi everyone!

    I just want to know if we really can't use styles that are defined in ThemeResource xaml file in W8.1 apps because I've been trying to use PhoneTextTitle1Style for example and it just won't work even though that style is defined in:

    Program Files (86x)/Microsoft SDKs/Windows Phone/v8.1/ThemeResources.xaml .

    Just don't feel like going back to VS2012 or defining anything when i can use styles in that file.

    Thanks.
