Run in the Simulator


As I’ve said, the Visual Studio Win8 app templates are far more complete than the application templates for other environments. Let’s gtve this one a whirl in the Simulator:

You can do this from the Visual Studio toolbar. Just select Simulator instead of Local Machine:

You can click the green arrow next to Simulator on the toolbar, choose Start Debugging from the Debug menu, or just press F5.

After a moment or two (or more—sometimes it takes awhile), your app will open in the Simulator, as shown on the next page.
