I am trying to deploy a C# app to my Windows 8 Metro desktop. The deployed files are in the bin folder but when I try to access them I get the following error:

This application can only run in the context of an AppContainer.


I checked the properties context menu and I searched through both the manifest and the project settings files. I think the solution is one of the following:

  • deploy the application with its security context set to AppContainer?
  • run the application in the AppContainer context?
  • deploy the application directly to my metro desktop?

But I have no clue how to approach this as I can't find the error in the docs.
