Converting to Visual Studio project for Windows Store app

With NeoMAD, you can generate the C# Windows 8 project for your application with NeoMAD Java source code. The project is automatically built when the application is compiled for a Windows 8 target.

Understand the Visual Studio project

For Windows 8.0 targets, a Visual Studio 2012 project is created in the output folder. This project can be opened, modified and built in Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Store app.

For Windows 8.1 targets, a Visual Studio 2013 project is created in the output folder. This project can be opened, modified and built in Visual Studio 2013 Express for Windows Store app.

The output folder is organized as follows:

  • .sln file: the Visual Studio solution file
  • .csproj file: the Visual Studio project file
  • NeoMAD jad.properties file simulating your application’s .jad file
  • lib folder containing the libraries required by the project
  • Properties folder with the default property files
  • src folder
    • with your source code translated into C#
    • with TargetInfo.cs containing the target’s technical information
  • res folder with your application’s resources

If Visual Studio 2012 or 2013 Express for Windows is installed on the computer running NeoMAD, a .zip file with the binary of the application will be generated alongside the project.
