You are working with Visual Studio and you have licensed Component One? Then you might had get the following error: Lc.exe exited with code -1. To fix this problem, make a backup of your license.licx file in the project folder, then clear the content of this file. Now a recompile should work fine.
This seems to be a popular problem in Windows 8 because the support forums are full of it: Without a reason Windows 8 store keeps hanging in the start screen and don’t finish loading. So here is a little workaround that worked for me:
- Rename the Cache folder to CacheOld at:
C:Users(Your User Account)AppDataLocalPackagesWinStore_cw5n1h2txyewyLocalState
- Create an empty folder called Cache
- Run “WSreset.exe” as administrator
