Windows Phone 8 support?

Nov 15, 2012 at 12:40 AM


When trying to run the project in a WP8 project I get an error:

 error CS0433: The type 'Microsoft.Phone.Controls.Pivot' exists in both '\Source\packages\wpunifiedad.1.3.2\lib\sl4-wp71\Microsoft.Phone.Controls.dll' and 'c:\Program Files (x86)\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\WindowsPhone\v8.0\Microsoft.Phone.dll'

 Is there any work around for this?  I think it is just because it was built for WP7 and I am using WP8.  Anyone tried converting the source up to WP8?

I did this last night.  Took all the code and upgraded it to WP8.  I got one weird error, but restarting VS seemed to fix it. 

It got rid of the pivot control reference since everything now hits WP8.  I didn't do all of the ad networks (because I only use 3 of them).

Just wanted to follow up in case someone else runs into this issue.

I upgraded wpunified to WP8 for my project. It only involved changing the target WP phone version in the project configuration.

However I also upgraded Smaato to the WP8 version from After I did that the Smaato control would show tiny squares about 4x4 pixels instead of the ad image.

Anyone else seen this?
