I develop and compile this using Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate. However if you are using Visual Studio Express to developer, there are reports that you can use Visual Studio Express 2012 for Desktop to compile it.


This utility is based off the original source code of Windows Phone Icons Maker by Hiroyuki Kawanishi. The source code had not been updated since September 2011, so I decided to fork it and update it to support the new platforms (WP7/WP8/WinRT).


The code is MS-PL as that is what the original source code was licensed as.
