All of which seem to be in NEW state?!

I realise you need to fix the underlying issues.... but please find a way to stop putting up a modal dialog - I recently did a demo where I had to close maybe 50 modal dialogs in a minute... the customers laughed, but I didn't make a sale that day.

Slodge is currently testing a fix for this.

Awaiting his feedback.
Comment 7 Peter Newhook 2012-12-23 17:06:24 UTC
Any updates to this? It's rendered Visual Studio Pro unusable for Windows 8 JavaScript app development, so I've had to use VS Express for the time being, but I'm at the point I'd rather uninstall Mono for Android.

Hi Peter,
  A fix should be available for this in the Beta channel as part of build 4.4.50.

It would be great to get feedback from someone other than Slodge on this bug.

we're currently evaluating the product. Do we have access to the beta channel?
Comment 10 Peter Newhook 2012-12-23 22:16:28 UTC
My mistake, I figured out how to change channels from within VS. There's doesn't seem to be easily Googleable documentation however.

In any event, I'm no longer getting that error when opening a Win8 JavaScript store application. I'll be putting VS though more tests tomorrow.

I believe this has been fixed - thank gawd
