Hi Cieja,

thank you for your interest in the ZXing.Net Project.
There are two way acessing the project. First go to and click on download. This will give you the latest version of the Project. In there you'll find trunk>Clients>WindowsPhone8Demo>WindowsPhone8Demo.csproj (
Second way is to go to Downloads ( and Download the SourcePackage. Same thing from here.

Hope I could help and have fun with ZXing.Net

Thanku you quickly response, but I have still problem.
I launched demo in Visual Studio, but when I wanted to build app I have error message:
Error 2 Metadata file 'C:\Users\xxxxx\Desktop\xxxxxx\zxingnet-87136\trunk\Build\Debug\wp8.0\zxing.wp8.0.dll' could not be found C:\Users\Maciej\Desktop\Biblioteka QR\zxingnet-87136\trunk\Clients\WindowsPhone8Demo\CSC WindowsPhone8Demo
And 2 warrnings:
Warning 1 Could not load file or assembly 'file:///C:\Users\xxxxx\Desktop\xxxxxx\zxingnet-87136\trunk\Build\Debug\wp8.0\zxing.wp8.0.dll' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified. WindowsPhone8Demo

Warning 3 The referenced component 'zxing.wp8.0' could not be found. WindowsPhone8Demo
I guess that zxing.wp8.0 is missing, but I have no idea where I should copy this dll.

just add the ZXing.Net Nuget Package to you solution or open the zxing.vs2012.sln in the source folder. After that you need to do some additional steps to get the certificate up and running. Take a look at the docu at

Excellet, great Thanks !

Could you tell which features I can write with this library? I mean that can I write an app where can I create QR Codes from e.g text, emails, picture, sms, localization and more.
