Porting a Windows Phone App to WinRT

  • Comments 2

This is an awesome article about how to port a WIndows Phone app to Windows 8.  Instructions, etc. Well written.

As you might think: “Well Written?  This can’t be written by Sam then!”  And that would be correct, it is on CodeProject:

CHeck it out and give the author 5 stars, then come back and read more of my stuff.

Got that, you all come back now!

  • It's pity that he didn't solve the Blend error.

    If he has installed "PowerCommand for Visual Studio 2010" extension (it is available and supported for VS11 beta), he could have open the project file by right-click the project and select "Edit Project File", then search for Import tag for *.Targets and fix the path there.

  • Hey good idea!

  • Sometimes posts will disappear because I realized that they really don't fit with the total chaos of what I write about
  • Links are tested and available on date of publication, what others do with their links are out of my control


  • Whatever I write on this blog is unedited by management or anyone, which should be obvious from the randomness of the blog.  I simply write about things I like.
  • Microsoft does not restrict me in anyway, so I generallyblather about whatever I want to.
  • For personal reasons I will not write about:
    • Company confidential stuff, mainly because Microsoft is more transparent than any company I have ever worked for.
    • Other people unless they give me permission to write about them
