    the tool doesn't work in Win8 (you need 8.1) because Windows.Management.Deployment.PackageTypes is not present in Win8.

    Hi!

    Excellent show, all always.

    Don't get me wrong, Andrew Richards is a true genius, but it somewhat hard to understand him sometimes.

    I would like to kindly suggest that he spoke a little bit slower, to make it easy for us (whose mother language is not English) to always understand him. The informations he conveys are priceless and I cannot afford to misunderstand them.

    Again, thanks for this superb show, that bring us very knowledgeable professionals as Andrew.

    @eduquint: would it help if we had closed captions you could read? What is your native language?

    I find that Andrew speaks very clear. Maybe the Australian English is the issue for him.

    This video does have closed captioning. Click the CC button and you have 14 languages to pick from.

    @golnazal thanks,

    I was watching in html5, and does not have the CC option here. In silverlight executes fine.

    LarryLarsen, thank you very much for adding closed captions for the new videos!
    Do you guys planning on covering all the previous shows with the CC? This would be really wonderful.

    @Vlad: There are no plans to add closed captioning to older videos. But most of our featured content from here on out will have closed captioning.

    @welingtonjr: it depends on your browser. Not everyone has built-in caption support for HTML 5 yet. It is part of the W3C spec though, and supported by IE10, IE11, and Chrome at this point I believe. (not sure if Chrome is done though, I believe they only let you view one language, not all 14 of the ones we've put on there)

    I noted that the Italian version of CC has several errors. Is the translated text *automatically* generated? I think that some human revision would be required.

    English is not my native tongue, and I also found Andrew's way of speaking hard to understand.
    (Maybe an English person who has Italian as second language might have the same problem if he tries to listen to some Italian speaking with some local dialect and accent :)

    I was happy to watch and listen to Jeff! I have some of his books: he's a very clear teacher.

    @JavaScriptBeginner: English is done by hand, the rest are generated by machine translation (using Bing) ... sorry about the errors, we'll try to determine the best way to take feedback on the translations

    @Duncanma: no need to be sorry. Even if there are some grammar errors and other "quirks", the CC Italian text is understandable, and much better than nothing! :)

    @LarryLarsen: My English is quite OK. I leaved in the USA for some years, and I spend at least one month every year in California. I speak English daily with my clients in the USA and with some local English-speaking clients too. Everything I write professionally is in American English. My native tongue is Brazilian Portuguese, but I also speak French, Italian, Spanish, and some Japanese.

    The problem is really his Australian English. However, I manage to understand it, only that it is somewhat hard sometimes to understand Andrew when he speaks very fast. Every now and then, I rewind the video for fully understanding him. Again, one does not want to miss anything he says, for it is always very interesting and useful. He is very knowledgeable and he is, for sure, the best one in his field.

    Hello, Please help me andrew, I am trying to code Windows 8 app with Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 8.1, but only find Windows 8 tutorials with visual studio 2012.  Everytime I try to build and deploy my apps I get the following error: Error 2 Error : DEP0700 : Registration of the app failed. error 0x80070003: AppX Deployment operation failed. The specific error text for this failure is: RDSAppXNotifyRecoveryTrigger (0x80073cf9)

    Upon searching for Help in Bing there is only one entry and it is deleted by MSDN.  Why?

    Can someone explain why I cannot deploy any basic apps.  I have already clicked the option in Visual Studio to make this app Windows 8.1 or whatever wording it used, but I am new at coding Windows  apps and this is very frustrating to be stopped at such a basic error with no explanation being found from search.
