As I talked about in my blogpost a couple of weeks ago, there have been some breaking changes in the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and Visual Studio 2012 RC that caused it to not work well against our “Summer 2012” release.
However, there is still one caveat with the Visual Studio 2012 RC and DA/Metro projects (and only with them): C# Data Abstract + Metro projects created using the New Project Wizard won’t compile out of the box, but complain that the application entry point is not found. Don’t panic! All you need to do is make any change (literally any – to add a space symbol is enough) to the App.xaml file. This will trigger an internal Visual Studio process that will recreate an auto-generated code-behind file that contains the application entry point and everything will work fine.
This issue is already fixed for the next beta, and will of course ship in the next release, but promoting this fix to the interim release was not easy/safe enough from the QA side of things.
Happy software developing on all platforms supported by Data Abstract (you will be surprised how wide the support is).
