A quick guide for those who want to use Facebook messages without downloading facebook messenger.

Step 1

Step 2
Make sure you have Unknown sources enabled from device settings

Step 3

As long as the only validation that the facebook app does is checking to find if an app with package name com.facebook.orca is installed on the phone this should work.

no xaml was found at the location ‘/mainpage.xaml’

saves me day

Network Programming in .NET

After upgrading a WP7 app to WP8 (VS 2013 RC), I got this very annoying error when trying to run the app in the emulator. “no xaml was found at the location ‘/mainpage.xaml'”.

I came across a conversation on twitter, regarding this, and saw that someone had the same problem, but said “Found it!!! Your application MUST have Invariant Language ticked as a supported language. Blog post to come :-)”

So, that narrowed my search, and I discovered a one line fix; In the AssemblyInfo.cs file, you have to change the line:

[assembly: NeutralResourcesLanguage(“en”, UltimateResourceFallbackLocation.Satellite)]

To

[assembly: NeutralResourcesLanguage(“en”)]

One line fix!. Pity the error message is not helpful at all.
