    Hello Bob.

    I am developing an app with the grid app template on windows 8.1 pro

    It seems to be the fact that in the windows 8.1 the app is likely to break and in visual studio 2013 ultimate, there is no LayoutAwarePage by default.

    Any help?

    @Maruri: Win8.1 changed the templates.  This was designed with VS 2012 and the Win8 templates.

    Bob Tabor is really a talent for describing complex Software architectures to beginners. Though Content is sometimes dry it's never boring listening to him.

    Thanx

    @Ewizza: I think the changes in 8.1 and Callisto are so dramatic that it completely broke this series.  I'm very sorry.  To my knowledge there's no effort underway to update the HOL or videos upon which it is based.  Sad
