Unable to activate Windows Tailored application error

Attempting to build a simple JavaScript application using Visual Studio 11 on the Windows 8 Developer Preview today and received the fun error “Unable to activate Windows Tailored application”.  I’m running the software using Virtualbox (4.1.8).  Turns out that my screen resolution wasn’t high enough in the virtual machine.  It needs to be at least 1024×768 and I had left it at the Virtualbox default of 800×600.  Changing the screen resolution and then attempting to run the program again succeeded.
