Xda-developers Windows Phone 8 Development and Hacking Windows Phone 8 Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting Where can I find.XAP decompiler for phone 8? By shek007 XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers.
Anyone have clue, how to go about viewing the source from the Microsoft.Phone.dll [Windows Phone 8 ]. I tried this with the .Net reflector and JetBrains dot peek , Unfortunately it did not decompile the assembly. Any help much appreciated.?David BekhamDavid Bekham
You need a WP8 Phone dump and extract System.Windows.dll from WP8Dump3WindowsSystem32 . Load that file as assembly in .Net reflector and you are on the way.The dump was online here xda developers, if you find a new one, please post it.
Have you tried Telerik JustDecompile? It is free to download here.
NOTE: I am answering to help you but I am not condoning anything you are trying to do with the DLL code. I am not sure what you want the code for or even if it is legal to decompile it.Ken CenerelliKen Cenerelli

I am trying to deploy some applications downloaded from marketplace to Windows Phone Emulator, but for every application it is showing error message '.xap file is invalid'. What could be going wrong here? Any suggestions? I have tried to keep Emulator running as well.
No you can't install apps from the store in the emulator, because you can't add a Microsoft account in the emulator which is required for installing apps from the store.
This is apparantly because the emulator is not seen as a trusted platform for Microsoft id. Here is an official answer from Microsoft to the same question:

How To Install Xap File To Windows Phone
No you can't install a downloaded .XAP file from the windows store in the emulator, due to emulator is not a trusted platform for the Microsoft Live ID.
Open Xap File
Ya exactly correct.To deploy any .xap file you must need to registered your device with Microsoft Live ID. Emulator will never accepted it,because emulator is not a trusted platform for the Microsoft Live ID. So it is not possible for installing downloaded .XAP file from the windows store in the emulator.
