So, you have heard the buzz about the brave new world of Windows 8 from MSFT’s BUILD Conference! Ready to get your hands muddy?

I’ve downloaded your code and tried to run, but unable to run due to the errors,
First Error I got Import error then I’ve chenage cs.proj v1 to v11 and loaded successfully when I am trying to run I am getting mismatch error.
I am using Win8 Cosumer Preview and Visual Studio 11 Beta.
The error is
There was a mismatch between the processor architechture of the project. Please send me the working version.
The sample code is based on Windows 8 Developer Preview & VS 11 Preview, both of which have been replaced with newer versions. So, I will not be surprised if it doesn’t compile. Please start with a fresh VS 11 Beta project; most of the code should be reusable.
