    " Windows Store apps require a screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher to run"

    The problem is without a doubt on your side, 720p must be supported as far as i know and i've read all around the net.
    This is from Microsoft itself:

    and a reply from an MS tech guy from someone asking why apps won't open at 720p

    The 1024x768 is a hard coded requirement for displaying the Windows 8 Apps.

    Your 1280 horizontal resolution is OK, but the 720 vertical resolution will not work.
    So no, it's not on my end.
    Oh now i get it, it must be the only 720 vertical pixels that won't allow apps to run on a 720p screen.
    Too bad for you man ! :-P

    La cerise sur le gāteau!
