Microsoft makes the RP version of Visual Studio Express and Blend available for free and I found some sample code on MSDN. I learned a LOT. I built the app. What I need now is one of those elusive Registration Codes for the Microsoft App Store so I can register as a legit developer, give them $50, and submit the app (free, of course) so others can use it. If anyone knows where I can get the invite only registration code, PLEASE, send the info my way.
