actually i am making an metro style app for performing some cryptographic actions.
i needed to work on some filepickers on the same page so i just marked some code as comment as i didn't needed that while working with filepickers.

Error 1 Cannot find type System.Security.Cryptography.AsnEncodedData in module System.dll. metro

this error is occuring when i try to debug my app i.e at runtime. let me clarify, i haven't added any external references in my project other than some external controls like devexpress and C1 components.

Any help ??? Thanks in advance....

Windows 8 Apps don't support this class.
Have a look at the MSDN page (System.Security.Cryptography namespace):[^]
If a class is supported in Windows 8 Apps, then there's a little green suitcase shown in the most left column.

Hope this helps.

A app for desktop security? Why you don't create a desktop application? With Visual Studio 2012 For Windows Desktop, you can create desktop applications, also for Windows 8.
