Windows Phone 8 app for Team Pinultimate


Windows 8 Installation

  1. Download Windows 8 (you have to use Windows 8)
    • Go here to download a free copy: Fill out the form, and make sure you download the 64-bt version
    • It might take a few hours before they email you with the download link, so don't worry if it doesn't happen right away
  2. Download VMWare or VirtualBox
  3. Configure Virtual Machine to support Windows Phone 8 Emulator

Configure Environment on Windows 8

From here on, the remaining work should be done in the virtual machine

  1. Download and Install Developer Tools
  2. Join the Windows Phone Dev Center (you can do this on the host OS)
  3. Update the OS on your Nokia Lumia 822
  • This is important. If you don't do this, you will not be able to install the app on your phone
  • On your phone, go to settings > phone update > check for updates, and then accept the update. Should take 5-10 minutes and a couple restarts to install it
  1. Register your Nokia Lumia 822 for Development
  • Plug in the phone into your computer (make sure that it connects to the Virtual Machine, not the host OS)
  • In Windows 8, open the Windows Phone Developer Registration app. (The easiest way to find it is simply to search for it.)
  • Follow the instructions from there, and the phone should now usable for development

Once these steps are complete, you should be able to clone the repo from GitHub, import it into Visual Studio 2012, and run the app either in the emulator or on the phone. If I missed anything or if you have any questions, lemme know!
