Windows 10, Visual Studio Community Edition, and Windows Phone

Argh. Argh argh argh argh argh.

(but OK-ish in the end for the emulator but not the phone – check the end of the post)

In installing Windows 10, I trusted in my VisualSVN server (good), trusted in Azure (good), but my published Windows app now fails to deploy with an error. What error? Too late to talk about that, but here are most of the screenshots that led to that point. Some tidying and explanation may follow (also, since Windows 10, the snipping tool hangs for 30 seconds, then fine – can’t see anything in task manager to indicate why).

One last argh.

15 minutes later….


And now it’s OK, with absolutely no changes on my part. I wonder if Windows 10 was still sending in its updates, along with Visual Studio etc, and it thought I was a bit quick off the mark.

We’ll see if it’s still healthy another day.

Trying to deploy to the phone rather than the emulator I get this…

Error 6 Error : DEP6810 : MdilXapCompile.exe failed with error code 2001. See log file 'C:\data\sandbox\SvnCheckoutRoot\LanguageApps\Projects\SpeakingNumbers\SpeakingNumbers\obj\ARM\Release\MDIL\MDILXapCompileLog.txt' for more details.

That file is too big to post here, but the final lines give no clues, other than the word “CrossGen”:

CrossGen failed
