Whenever I try to compile a Windows Store application, be it C# or HTML/js, be it on local machine or on the simulator, I get the following error code: DEP0600.
No error text message is shown
Also, opening any view in Blend results in an error as well, stating it could not register the manifest file.
I noticed a Windows Installer instance is executed in the background, which sometimes keeps a lock on the project's manifest file, preventing further compilations to succeed. I have to force a shut down of windows installer to release the lock.
I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8.
VS 2012 was already installed, but I tried a repair install and uninstall/reinstall.
Don't know if this is related to the previous problem, but any new installation/update in the windows store hangs in "pending" state.
