I made a game with Construct 2 beta r112.
I exported the project for "Windows 8" platform.
I downloaded Visual Studio 2012, as explained scirra.com/tutorials/272/how-to-make-a-windows-8-app (version 4.5.50709)
But when I want to open the .sln file, I get an error message :

Don't know what to do ... and so little time until the end of the Windows 8 game competition :(
For information, I tried with an empty project, and the problem is the same.
So the steps are :
Edit: I'm working on Windows 8 RTM 64 bits.
Can the problem be I have a french version ?
Are you sure you downloaded the right version of VS2012? You need "Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows 8", not a trial version.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Oh my bad ... I downloaded "Visual Studio 2012 Express for Web" ... I didn't see the other link on MS page (your link redirect me to another page since I'm in France).
Very sorry for being so stupid :/
Thank you !
Sorry to bump this old thread, but I can't get it to work for some reason. I have the same problem as —

I've tried multiple versions of VS too (because I downloaded the wrong ones TWICE) before finally finding this thread and installing VS 2012 Express for Win8.
I'm currently using Win8 x64, exported the game using the Windows Phone 8 option.
Edit: Sorry, didn't even see this was on the bugs forum. Just bumped it because it was the only thread where someone was having the same problem as me!
andreyin - same problem, same cause - you have the wrong version of Visual Studio. There's a separate version for Windows Phone 8, you can't open WP8 projects in the version for just Windows 8 apps.
I see now! Man, this is such a mess.. so I need "Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Phone", right? Downloading it right now to try it out, thanks!
