I don't have any PC running on Win 8.1 however, though there is nothing groundbreaking in the app, and it should have worked without any problem.jalayn said... Thanks for the screenshot @Riari. Well I had other problems while developing the app, but never this one.I'm on a PC running 8.1, the same thing happens if I kill it and relaunch, even after reboot.
This just is the splash screen, and it should briefly flash before displaying the form allowing to enter the API key.
Does it work properly if you kill the app and launch it again ?
And, are you using it on an tablet, or PC?
While taking a look at the background task registration code, I noticed something that could make it not work on Windows 8.1. Does the app request access to the lock screen when you launch it the first time ? Because if you avoid answering, or answer "no", background tasks cannot run. On Windows 10, background tasks do not require to have access to the lock screen anymore which is why I did not notice the problem.
Furthermore, I've changed the background task trigger so that it *should* not require having access to the lock screen. Check for an app update within a few days ; I hope your problem gets resolved.
