I’m just staring to get into Windows Phone 8 development, and ran across the following issue:
After installing Visual Studio 2012, the Windows Phone 8 SDK (and related updates), and enabling Hyper-V, I was getting the following error when attempting to to deploy any sort of basic application to the emulator:
Xde.exe has stopped responding.
The only error code that it gave was in Visual Studio was 0x80131500. After a little bit of digging, the following solution was found:
In Visual Studio, select the Tools->Extensions and Updates…, and make sure Visual Studio Update 3 has been installed. Once this was installed, the Windows Phone 8 emulator ran just fine.
Shout out to this blog for having the solution.
