When I try to run the VSIX for this I get a dialog in Windows 8 asking me "How do you want to open this file?" With the option: continue using "" "%1" selected. This does not work. Is there something wrong with my Release Candidate setup? Do I need to wait for RTM?

I got the answer in the MSDN forums, but in case anyone else runs into an issue like this here's the answer:

It boils down to I installed Visual Studio 2010 for Windows Phone after my Visual Studio 2012 install and the .vsix registration got messed up. Select "Microsoft Visual Studio Version Selector" to make it work again.
