[PATCH]Lacking a signing key in MSBuild


When building a WinRT exe project, the package can be generated in VS, but not MSBuild. The error message is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft\VisualStudio\v12.0\AppxPackage\Microso
ft.AppXPackage.Targets(1772,9): error APPX0101: A signing key is required in or
der to package this project. Please specify a PackageCertificateKeyFile or Pack
ageCertificateThumbprint value in the project file.

It looks like WriteWinRTPackageCertificateKeyFile is implemented but not called. A patch is attached to fix this problem.

Thanks Minmin for the issue. I'll integrate the patch this week and will publish a new build.

It looks like this problem comes up again in 09-02-2014's version. The .pfx disappears in generated .vcxproj.

I'll look into this.

Thanks Minmin.
