migrate to Windows 8 Metro

Mar 22, 2012 at 10:30 AM


Apparently I can no longer use the old compiled source and .dll for Windows 8 Metro project in VS11 Beta.

VS shows the message saying "A reference to 'C:\Users\....\AppLimit.CloudComputing.SharpBox.dll' could not be added. The project targets '.NETCore' while the file reference targets '.NETFramework'. This is not a supported scenario.

Metro app requires source to be compiled as "Portable class library" instead of current console class library. 

I encountered some issue such as failed to find type or namespace, 

1. 'HttpException' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Web'. (in file DropBoxStorageProviderTools.cs, line 213, col 31)

2. 'DataContractSerializer' could not be found (happened twice, in file CloudStorage.cs, line 384 & 490, col 34)


Could anyone kindly help me out with this migration?


Thank you,
