Extended splash screen universal apps

Nov 10, 2014 at 8:04 AM
I've registered my extended splash screen with
 this.ExtendedSplashScreenFactory = (splashscreen) => new ExtendedSplashscreen(splashscreen);
and in my OnLaunchApplicationAsync
I run
await PrepareApplication() 
which copies the database etc.

The code works great on Windows 8.1, but on Windows Phone 8.1 I am thrown to
if (global::System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached)    lobal::System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Break();
With the message
{System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.}
Value: "Invalid pointer"

I have the same issue... anything we need to verify for this to work?

I had the same problem. The extended splash screen must implement the IView interface.
