WP Emulator Crashing on Windows 8? Here’s a Fix

Don’t you just hate it when you upgrade to a new OS (even when it’s a beta) and everything works amazingly well, except for that one critical bit of infrastructure that just fails? That’s kind of how you might be feeling if you boot up your brand spanking new Windows 8 install, install VS 2010 and the WP 7.1 SDK, followed by the 7.1.1. update to get the emulator and Tango support, boot up your project – hit F5… drum roll… emulator crashes. Sigh.

Luckily, there’s an easy fix!

Rename all of the *.dess files under %systemdrive%\programdata\Microsoft\XDE and restart the emulator, and all should be good.

What’s going on?

For some reason the saved state of the emulator is getting corrupted, by renaming these files (which could probably be safely deleted) you’re forcing the emulator to recreate them (shutdown may be a little slower the first time you close the emulator).

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Cheers!, http://goo.gl/JXM3cd

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog
    soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
