Hi everyone.
We are using this library for a xamarin project. We have it working for android, our test project (.net 4.5) and the Windows Phone 8.1 emulator (x86).

When running it on a physcial WP 8.1 device however the following exception occur:
Unable to set temporary directory.
When digging into the innerexceptions the root of the problem seam to be something else.
{System.TypeLoadException: Could not find Windows Runtime type 'SQLitePCL.Ext.WindowsPhone8.RuntimeProxy.SQLite3RuntimeProvider'.
   at SQLitePCL.SQLite3Provider.Sqlite3Open(IntPtr filename, IntPtr& db)
   at SQLitePCL.SQLiteConnection..ctor(String fileName, Boolean setTemporaryDirectory)}
The code producing the exception:
protected SQLitePCL.SQLiteConnection ReferenceDataConnectionPcl
                if (_refDataConnectionPcl == null)
                    var dbfolder = IoC.IocContainer.GetInstance<IFileManager>().DatabaseFolder.Path; 
                    _refDataConnectionPcl = new SQLitePCL.SQLiteConnection(Path.Combine(dbfolder, DB_FILENAME));
                return _refDataConnectionPcl;
I believe the right packages have been added til the WP project
  <package id="PCLStorage" version="0.9.6" targetFramework="wp81" />
  <package id="PhoneThemeManager" version="2.0" targetFramework="wp81" />
  <package id="Serilog" version="1.3.43" targetFramework="wp81" />
  <package id="SimpleInjector" version="2.5.2" targetFramework="wp81" />
  <package id="SQLite.Net.Platform.WindowsPhone8" version="2.3.0" targetFramework="wp81" />
  <package id="SQLite.Net-PCL" version="2.3.0" targetFramework="wp81" />
  <package id="sqlite-net-wp8" version="3.8.5" targetFramework="wp81" />
  <package id="WPtoolkit" version="4.2013.08.16" targetFramework="wp80" />
  <package id="Xamarin.Forms" version="" targetFramework="wp81" />
Any idea what might be wrong and how to fix this issue?

Thanks in advance and have a great day
