Installation Instructions for mtiks WP7 analytics

by Mtiks

These instructions are assuming that you are using Visual Studio (with Windows Phone 7 Tools & C# as the language) to build your project. Please follow the instructions below to integrate mtiks library into your existing development project.

  • Create a new application in the portal and get a new code for the new app
  • Download our library from the portal
  • Requirements: .NET Framework 4, Windows Phone 7 Tools
  • Add a reference to System.Reflection if you don’t have it already
  • Please make sure that you have these capabilities in your WP7AppManifest.xml. Otherwise, you will get UnauthorizedAccessException.
     <Capability Name="ID_CAP_IDENTITY_DEVICE"/>
     <Capability Name="ID_CAP_IDENTITY_USER"/>
  • Reference app from your windows phone 7 project
  • Declare the namespace as “using com.mtiks.winmobile;”
  • At the beginning of Application_Launching and Application_Activated, add the following line: 
     mtiks.Instance.Start("YOUR_APP_KEY", Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly());



    YOUR_APP_KEY is the code generated from the Apps page after you create an app. If you copied it, paste it in place of YOUR_APP_KEY.

  • Include the following statement at the beginning of “Application_Closing” and Application_Deactivated, add the following line 
     mtiks.Instance.Stop();
  • If you would like to track custom events and attributes within your app (more info here): 
     mtiks.Instance.postEventAttributes("Event Name", "Attribute List in Dictionary strings");
  • If you like to track your app exceptions from runtime, please use the following 
     mtiks.Instance.AddException(
        @"description"
     );
