Thank you for attaching the log to this ticket. There are multiple errors logged indicating that Visual Studio cannot access the ...\App_Resources\WP8\ApplicationIcon.png
file. This is the cause for your issue, but let me take a step back and try to elaborate on how the project icon settings work.
provides you with a handy UI allowing you to control multiple platform-specific settings, such as the Windows Phone
application icon and splash screen images. These settings are actually applied through the platform-specific configuration files and resources. In an AppBuilder
project such files and resources are placed under the App_Resources
folder. This means that when you upload images for the Windows Phone
application icon and splash screen, AppBuilder
will add them in your project under the App_Resources\WP8
Having that in mind, we can now go back to the error being thrown in your project - access denied to the ...\App_Resources\WP8\ApplicationIcon.png
file. When you are working under a version control, the version control can lock project files by either blocking or making them read-only. In both cases, AppBuilder
cannot access them and the uploaded images cannot be added or applied in the project. This is actually a bug on our side which I logged in our internal issue tracker. It seems we haven't handled the case of having the image files under App_Resources
locked under a source control tool and I updated your Telerik points for bringing this case to our attention.
If you are using TFS
as a source control and you have the files under App_Resources
checked in, please check them out before replacing them through the UI. If you are using a different source control, please let us know which one, so we can make sure to test an AppBuilder
project behavior with it.
Checking out the files can be a temporary workaround until the issue is addressed, which should be in one of our next releases.
