Well, what is XAP?
XAP is the file format used to install application software on Windows Phone 7.5/8 platforms and Silverlight Applications. This will change in Windows 8.1. You can look at the contents of an XAP file by renaming (by changing .XAP to .ZIP as it is ZIP formatted file) it.
Read about my XAP article here:
Using XapDeploy.exe tool you can deploy to a connected device or a chosen emulator (choose emulator from drop-down list)
Double click this file (in Windows 8.1 search yo can also lok for Application Development) and the User Interface will be displayed as shown:
Select the device (a Windows 8.1 Phone connected to the laptop) or one of the emulators from the following list:
Browse and find the file with the extension .xap and click Deploy.
The Emulator gets displayed and the App gets deployed. You have to run XapDeploy.exe in elevated mode(Admin credentials using Run As Administrator). The whole process may take considerable time keep watching the Status of Deployment at the bottom of the Application Deployment Window.
Here is my Honolulu app deployed to the emulator.
