[Windows RT 8.1] Development Tool V3.0 BUILD XXXX

This project is deprecated and no longer actively maintained as of 1st July 2019.

Deprecation of the Development Tool

Dear folks,

After almost three years, we finally came to an end. As of today, 1st July 2019, this project is deprecated and no longer actively maintained. Why? Simply because I do not own a Windows RT device anymore. I replaced it with a Surface Pro (2017) and I am very very happy with the replacement.

Before I close this project for good, I will leave some things behind for the future developers. Firstly, the last version of the Development Tool, which can be found here (and of course the GitHub page about the tool). Secondly, everything I still had on my machine with regard to Windows RT. For Windows RT 8.0, click here and for Windows RT 8.1, click here. The password is XDA for both folders.

If there is anything, feel free to contact me.

Kind regards,

P.S. I really want to thank @Qiangong2 for all his help. Without him, this project would have never existed.

For some reason after going to test signing mode I could not run the Perl package that was release some days ago. To make it work I hard to resign the dll and exe with my own certificate.
I'm making it available here:
Perl 5.12.4 A versatile programming laguage. Download

Quake 2 -ARM- ID Software.zip

I quickly made a script to sign apps a bit easier, simply copy it to the apps folder, right click and run it as admin, it creates a .cer, searches and signs all dlls and exes in the dir and sub dirs.

Ensure you have your path set for Windows Kits bins
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\x64
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\bin\x64

Just want to say thanks. I'm a noob and no idea how to sign software, and have 0 patience on trying to find out. Waited 2 years for this thing to be JB'd and finally it's done, thanks to Myriachan as well. The feeling is like that time I went from WP8 back to Android.

It could be nice to compile every emulator for each retro consoles to enhance gaming on Windows RTs devices.
Maybe I'm dreaming too much, but running a Dreamcast emulator on it would be epic !

I read somewhere a while back about one in the works but forgot where, ill do some digging I too would like to see all emulators on RT.
