    VS 2012 does not list devices or Emulator to start application in

    Hi,

    I am having strange issue, my visual studio 2012 does not list device option, neither any emulator to deploy my code.

    I remember everything used to work fine before I upgraded my VS 2012 to VS update 3 RC.

    Afterwards I've tried 1) Re-install VS2012 2) Re-install WP8 SDK but avails no luck :-(

    It keeps saying - "The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002) Please rebuild the solution and try again."

    Given below is the screenshot for my visual studio:


    The only available option is "Start" seems like VS is treating it as a normal project and not loading the option for WP8.

    Strange issue it seems. Does anyone encounter this ?

    Do you have access to VS 2012 Ultimate to test?

    Try to run VS as Administrator (Run As -> Administrator). See if that helps.

    This error code suggest the error is due to installation issue and most probably some files are not getting located after installation.
    uninstall the VS and reinstall, make sure you are doing it with Administrator account.

    Device option works with ARM type and not x86.

    Hope that might help
