Since you're developing via Visual Studio, you don't use a "build.settings" file.  That file is only applicable to Corona Simulator builds.  So, the configuration that you normally put into a "build.settings" file you would have to do yourself as documented by Microsoft.

 

For example, a lot of the WP8 app settings can be found by double clicking your project's "WMAppManifest.xml" file.  You would set your app name, version, and supported resolutions/capabilities/requirements here.

 

You app icon/tile images are under your project's "Assets\Tiles" directory, which is the standard WP8 location for them (this is a Microsoft thing too).  This means you should not include "Icon*.png" files found in Corona sample projects, because those are only applicable to Corona Simulator builds as well.  In Visual Studio, you have to set app icons/tiles Microsoft's way.

 

You would also set your app page's orientation and status bar setting via the "MainPage.xaml" in XML.  Just double click on the "MainPage.xaml" file and you can see those settings in the XML panel.

 

The "config.lua" is still applicable.  You only need to exclude the "build.settings" and app icon files that are normally in a Corona Simulator build.  I hope this helps getting you started.

It all works! YAY! I thought I had better stick Windows Enterprise + Visual Studio Ultimate on to help me test out before crashing my phone everytime.

Everyone,

 

The newest WP8 CoronaCards build that got pushed out (build #2387) resolves the installation issue that some of you may have seen with "Visual Studio Express 2013".  And we've updated our documentation to make it clear that you need "Update 2" of that version of Visual Studio, since that's the version Microsoft added WP8 support to (it used to not be included and only available in the 2012 version).  I apologize for the confusion.  That was a fairly new update of Visual Studio that we didn't have much time to test with compared to the other 2 versions that we support.

 

The advantage of the 2013 Update 2 version is that it includes more WP8 emulators.  Specifically both Windows Phone 8.0 and 8.1 versions and their new 1080p device emulator.  If you had the Pro version of Visual Studio 2013, then you already had support for this.
