Universal app 8.1 release build resources not found


I was trying to use this library in a universal windows app 8.1, which is working fine until I use Release mode to deploy the app.
There seems to be a problem with the location of resource files, I believe microsoft changed the way these work (not sure). In universal apps resw files should be used instead of resx so far I know.

This is the following error I get when deploying:
Error: Compile filter argument specified non-existent file: ...\obj\ARM\Release\MSIL\da\FluentValidation.resources.dll 
I checked the folder and indeed its not there, but it is in ...\obj\ARM\Release\MSIL\FluentValidation.resources.dll

Instead of each language in a separate folder.

Does anyone know a fix for this or will this require a new fluentvalidation package for universal apps?

Apologies for not replying sooner - CodePlex has been in read-only mode for the last week so I've been unable to post comments. Because codeplex seems like it's now on its last legs, I've moved the project to github - if you'd like to continue the discussion please post again over there:

Unfortunately it looks like this is going to require quite a bit of work to implement, and I personally don't have the time to work on this anytime soon - unless you (or someone else) would like to submit a pull request I think it'll be a few months before I get the time to add support for this. Sorry.
