In Topic: Device creation fails (Win 10, C++)

22 April 2016 - 08:38 PM

D3D debug layer stuff isn't installed by default in Win10, you need to install it yourself. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/mt210797.aspx

Bigger system updates may require reinstalling it, I remember it stopped working for me after Win10's big november update.


Thank you! You're absolutely right, I forgot that I upgraded to 10586 build recently. Everything works fine now :)

In Topic: Good places to learn Universal App development

11 April 2016 - 09:26 PM

@ferrous, I'm not developing a game right now, just trying to find apps that are a bit lacking in the market as I would like to monetize it. But it's interesting that Unity could do that as I would probably want to port some of games later. Right now I found this book called Universal Windows Apps with XAML and C# and it seems to be working out so far even though it only mentions Win 8.1. The last book I got 3 chapters in and after starting to implement the view model I realized Visual Studio 2015 didn't even come with the libraries to support MVVM so I didn't have a definition for RelayCommand, tried everything, downloaded mvvmlight and everything, so I wrote my own Relay Command (ahem, copied it off some site) and then there was another function that was mission. I just gave up on it. Really frustrating how MS just pours millions of dollars into these neat frameworks and just drops support with next iteration of visual studio.

Thanks, but the first 3 links are just overviews of what the framework actually is, there is no code there or examples. Maybe I should rephrase what I really need, I'm aware that there are no resources for UWP, I know how to use google and believe me I looked. What I need is something that is just as good. For example could I use an older book made for Windows 8.1 universal apps or is windows 10 too different? Are there any patters that I need to learn for better app dev like MVVM, because a lot of places mention it for Win 8, but for Win 10 it's like the whole infrastracture changed and I can't even implement it in Visual Studio anymore. So I'd like to maybe hear from a dev who's working on the platform of things I need to learn in order to get to know this UWP better.

In Topic: Application runs twice in Visual Studio

@Henderson it's actually only that project. I tried creating an console project on the same machine and it doesn't have that behavior. 

@Nypyren I don't have any build steps involved. 


At this point I'm just thinking of moving the whole project over to a new one, but I'd really not do that as I feel it's going to be a hassle. 

In Topic: Weird access violation when copying data

I actually did read what you posted, there is a "history" button you can use to see... but whatever, keep making assumptions. I'm exiting this thread now.

oh good, then you can see why I deleted it, how many people you'd think it'd help?
