I am having issues on publishing a Visual C++ /CLI WinForm application using Windows Application packaging project to Windows Store.

At Windows Application packaging project stage:

  1. it cannot find the .h files where I have specified to the .vcxproj
  2. it is not linking the win32 .lib files such as User32.lib

Here is the video link that described the current problem.

QUESTIONS:

  1. How to add the include search path to the .wapproj file ?
  2. How to add win32 .lib library files to .wapproj file ?

I don't see any option available to add the above two statements mentioned aside the .wapproj merely.

Please advise.

    I resolved the problem by adding the my custom .h files folder to the "Additional Include Directories" to C/C++ and Linker of Configuration Properties for "Debug", "Release" and its respective Platform "Win32" and "x64" as shown below:
