Should be as simple as right clicking the project in solution explorer and selecting add Reference

VS2012 has a checkbox to the left of the item that you wish to add. Make sure that it is ticked and THEN click OK.

Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Task Manager for Hyper-V provides critical information that allows you to monitor Hyper-V performance by displaying real-time views of CPU and memory at the individual VM-level, so you can quickly identify which VMs are using host resources.

A resources file? Right click project, select Add new Item, Select General (in the left hand pane), Resources file should be listed in centre pane.

I suggest you download another version of Visual Studio Express 2012 so that it installs the template

Not included in Express according to this :(

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8623078/creating-a-rc-file-in-visual-studio-2010-express

Could I create them in a trail of Visual Studio Full then somehow use then in Express?

I knew I'd seen a way of adding resources somewhere and as I only ever used Express products.

So I can add resources in web dev express... how now to include them in windows phone?


Also why is it OK to let WebDevExpress users add resources but no for Phone?

Both products put their templates in the same area, so I'm assuming once you install vs 2012 for web they will also be available to you in vs 2012 for window 8 phone.

Suggest then you create the resource file in visual studio express for web saving it to where your phone solution is saved to, then in visual studio for windows phone 8 right click the project in solution explorer and select add existing item and browse and add the resource file.

should just be a case of add new item, then expand Visual BAsic or C# and then click on General. Same as shown in poor_beggars screenshot he posted.
