This saved the developers a lot of time and work force required for changing the code for releasing the application in different operating systems. Now with the new deal with the Microsoft, Corona developers will be able to make applications for Windows phone 8 and Windows Store too with the Software Development Kit.
As shown in the Microsoft chat support site, the market share of the Windows 8 devices and apps are increasing in an exponential rate from its release in early 2012. Microsoft acquires this growth mainly due to the support of high quality apps on the Windows 8 devices.

Leave a replyError in Windows Live Messenger
Sometimes you have a problem while trying to sign in to Windows Live Messenger, and get an error code for your effort. This error code in Windows Live Messenger – 80040154 – is due to the language used in your PC, which is the MSXML. The MSXML language is that which is used by personal computers to exchange information between two servers, through the internet. There is also a set of programs and settings that Windows computers make use of to this end. The internet related programs in Windows, such as Skype, Windows Live messenger, and many more, are based on the MSXML language. Exchange of several hundreds of important files and settings takes place, between two personal computers.
As a solution to the problems you may have regarding this error code, you first have to fix the issues from the MSXML language on your system, and then clean up your registry of all the possible problems. Here are some Windows Live Help guidelines on how to do that.

This can be done by clicking on the command prompt in Windows and then using the function there to re-register the required file.

Another way is to clean out the registry in your PC. This can be done with the help of a registry cleaner. The registry is the central store space, where all the things needed to run Windows are stored. This database supports your system, and manages the important options that allow for things from the automatic download of the desktop to the password options and settings you have in place as a user. The registry is central to the working of the entire Windows System. So cleaning out the registry means cleaning out most of the problems from the computer system.
