    Re: How to change the Application name or the Title and Application package or .xap n

    The name of the .XAP is normally based on the name of the Project - but this isn't the name of the app that the users sees. That is controlled by the App manifest file...

    More about all the various options in the App manifest... http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...v=vs.105).aspx

    Have you tried building the project perhaps? Look into the various output folders in your project afterwards.

    The only way to change the name of the .XAP file would be write a script which runs after the build process is complete (post-build step).

    Shravan (SKUMAR or Gto_India) waiting for this long does not necessarily mean that he is looking for something complicated. It could be as simple as perhaps http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...v=vs.110).aspx

    Re: How to change the Application name or the Title and Application package or .xap n

    The .xap is actually a .zip file. You can freely rename it. Also, if you open Project/Properties, there may be an explicit line right on the first page saying "Xap file name". You have not mentioned platform and tool, so I checked a WP7 project with VS2010.
    Edit: sorry, you mentioned VS2010, then this is the way. It still remains fantastic that you rather wait for a full day instead of trying the most trivial thing.

    How much easier than do you want it to be? Now only thing remaining would be to hire somebody to do couple of mouse clicks and type-in the name

    Regarding the same unsafe..Its your code, so you should know, but here is what you need to know http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/chfa2zb8.aspx
    (I used a search engine to get that link..matter of few seconds really..just had to copy your text " Allow Unsafe Code" thats all into the search text area...this too cant be easier than that )
