Deploy windows 8 app from the command line

May 12, 2012

I was developing a Windows 8 Metro JavaScript app and wanted to get the command line equivalent of Visual Studio “Build -> Deploy Solution”.

Simply do: devenv mysolution.sln /deploy “Release|x86” /project myproject.jsproj /projectconfig “Release|x86”

The result is located in bin/x86/Release/AppX.

This is nice because the result includes the code for the all references.  It also creates a combined .pri (resouces) file.
