Windows 8 Testing Error

Hey guys I have an issue when signing my app. When I try signing it, an error occurs where it says that the .cer file was not found. The certificate was not found.

Could not find file 'appnameCertificate.cer'

I looked through the forums and I saw two other people had the same issue and someone told them to check their spelling of their Publisher ID to make sure it matches with the gamesalad online system. I did this, the IDs match.

Someone please help.

    Nevermind everyone on that issue I figured it out, but I have a new problem now, when I try running the powershell file it pops up with an error saying

    "The string is missing the terminator: ".
    *CategoryInfo : ParseError: (:) [], ParentContainsErrorRecordException
    *FullyQualifiedErrorId : TerminatorExceptedAtEndOfString

    I hope anyone can understand this and help me. From what I read I think it is an issue with my .ps1 file. But I tried downloading a new one and the error still happened. I am using a Suface Pro running Windows 8.

    Never seen that one before. Have you successfully tested a win8 app before? Is your win8 dev environment setup properly?

    @atxryan might have some insight

    Thanks for the response. This is my first time testing a win8 app on this device. But I have installed the SDK and Visual Studio. I don't think there is anything else to do.

    When you extract the zipped app download from the GS portal extract it to a folder that does not have any spaces in the name.
