Thanks for the reply. But we are trying to implement live id login to our windows store app (html and javascript using phone gap) done in visual studio 2012 as specified in
The link says, open visual studio, in Solution Explorer, right-click References > Add Reference.... Go to Windows > Extensions, and check the box next to Live SDK. If you don't see Live SDK in the list, reinstall the Live SDK and retry this procedure. Click OK to exit the dialog box. We tried to reinstall it ,but we didn't got anything as specified above.Instead we have, In Solution Explorer, right-click References > Add Reference.... Go to Assemblies > Extensions> . And when running windows phone emulator, it generates an error like this ," WL is undefined in our js file". I am including the code ,i used for live id login, which i written in index.js on visual studio.

function onLogin() {

document.getElementById('load').innerHTML = "Loading............";



scope: "wl.emails"


function (response) {


path: "me",

method: "GET"


function (response) {

// alert(response.emails.preferred);

var req = new XMLHttpRequest();

var serviceUrl = 'service url';

req.onreadystatechange = function() {


if(req.readyState == 4) {

document.getElementById('token').value = req.responseText;

}"GET",serviceUrl+"?username=" + response.emails.preferred + "&action=1",true);



function (responseFailed) {

alert('Failed to receive email');

document.getElementById("infoArea").innerText =

"Error calling API: " + responseFailed.error.message;




function (responseFailed)



document.getElementById("infoArea").innerText =

"Error signing in: " + responseFailed.error_description;


included /// <reference path="///LiveSDKHTML/js/wl.js" /> in index.js
and <script src="///LiveSDKHTML/js/wl.js"></script> in index. html. Kindly suggest me how this can be done..and waiting for a response soon.

Ahh, sorry. I thought you were writing an app. HTML and javascript is a web page to me but I am bumping into programmers that will call a web page an app.

Good luck in cracking this one.

In reply to: windows app

I'm a little more of the app that you compile from C/C++ or languages and as I noted, HTML and script to me is what it is. Hope you crack it.

I see your cross post.

But my answer is to re-think your choice of html and script. Or surrender and call Microsoft.
