Description

You get the following message when a Windows 8 app is built on the TFSPrview Build Service.

This Windows Store app could not be packaged. You can only package Windows Store apps on computers that have the Windows 8 operating system.

Is there a timeline yet? TF Service is already live. Build services are still in preview/beta, but it's good to know if this will be implemented or not. THX!

Building Win8 apps with the hosted build service on tfspreview.com is not supported. We are working towards enabling this but we don't have a timeline for its availability yet.
The current solution is to setup a Win8 onpremise build machine and configure it against your account on tfspreview.com
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Madhuri (Test Lead, TFS Build)
