Debugging Win8 Store Apps using Remote Desktop
Today’s Win8 developer head scratcher:
Run Visual Studio 2012 on another computer using Remote Desktop (RDC) and when you press F5 to debug, if you minimize the RDC window while it’s launching, the “store” app never appears. Visual Studio thinks it’s running but you can’t get to the app’s full-screen window to interact with it.
Never happens when you’re running on the actual machine nor does it ever fail as long as the RDC window is not minimized.
I suspect that it’s the virtual video driver somehow.
