Question

Why can't I use htmlagilitypack with windows phone 8? I appears to be supported on all platforms including Win8 Win8RT and WP7/WP7.5 and Silverlight 5. Is there one of the DLLS that would work?

What else can I use to Parse HTML in WP8? All suggestions are for the htmlagilitypack.

Popular Answer

The issue appears to be that the NuGet package references the incorrect assembly for WP8.

By default it seems that it references the binary in sl4-windowsphone71, manually removing the reference to the HtmlAgilityPack DLL and referencing the binary in the sl3-wp folder removes the dependency problem.

That is how I have resolved it anyway.
