Cannot create Flickr instance in WP8.1 XAML



I can't create an istance of Flickr with this library on Windows Phone 8.1 Xaml application. It should be identical to Windows 8!

The problem is:
An exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in GuideCitta.WindowsPhone.exe but was not handled in user code

Additional information: Could not load file or assembly 'System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

I've downloaded the dll from here and from nuget, but seems to be no difference, I still get the same error. Is this a known issue or am I just missing something?

Have you tried the flickrnetwp7.dll, rather than the windows one?

Yes, but it does not work... :(
The error is: "Cannot find type System.Security.Criptography.HashAlgorithm in module mscorlib.dll"

Mmmnn, in that case you might need to look at the experimental release over on my github:

Thank you so much, with this experimental library everything works!
What's in there? The same code with the upgrade to .NET Framework 4.5?

I think that you must put this link on the home of the project, this should help other user that might want to develop WP8.1 application :)

Anyway, thank you again!

That code targets Windows 8 Store apps - the existing framework does not work in Windows Store apps (and Windows Phone 8.1 universal apps as well I guess by your issue).
