A colleague asked me today why on side-loading an example application for testing all the data previously saved in application’s isolated storage was lost. Is that normal? And if so, how can one still test use cases such as application updates, when it is important that data saved by the old version of the app remains accessible to the new application instance?
Well, it is normal. If you are using the Application Deployment tool (
XapDeploy.exe), that is .
