Trouble with the Calculator App

Just found this product today... what a game-changer for me. I will gladly be paying for the Pro Edition as soon at the example app works as I would expect. (soooo close)

I am running VS2013 on a Win7ProSP1 clean VM and installed C#/XAML for HTML5 Beta 5 a couple of hours ago. Following the prescribed steps, I do indeed get a calculator app running in the Simulator and in the browser. NICE!!

But when I pull up the designer for MainPage.xaml to see how this is being done, the designer claims 'Invalid Markup' and indicates that these four lines have an issue:

Code: Select all

    <Setter Property="Height"  Value="60"/>
    <Setter Property="Width" Value="60"/>
    <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="#FFBBBBBB"/>
    <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="18"/>

The issue is:

Code: Select all

The TypeConverter for "DependencyProperty" does not support converting from a string.

I am guessing i don't have the right version of something installed/selected?
