Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.Current.Id.FamilyName Vs Family name in Package .Manifest file.

    Question

  • Hello, I am trying to get package family name from Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.Current.Id.FamilyName.

    What I got is name of the folder located in Appdata->Local->Packages folder. C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Packages\XXX.XXAppforWindows8_kcdnnw7pbsh48. But When I look for package family name in Package.manifest file it is different.(YYY.YYYAppforWindows8_de8jme7bttkaw).

    I assume these both should be same. Is it not?

    If not, is there any property to get YYY.YYYAppforWindows8_de8jme7bttkaw?

    Thanks.

  • I am going to suggest you to open a support case with our technical support team to investigate into this further.   

      

    You may already have support cases associated with your developer account so you can use your developer account to open a support case.   

      

    1.)    Visit the URL: http://aka.ms/storesupportwith your developer account.  

    2.)    Towards the bottom of the page, there is a link that says “…contact us immediately.”  

    3.)    Click that link and then it will ask you to choose the support type. To reach the correct support team choose the following:  

    a. Problem Type: “Technical support for Windows Store and Windows Phone app development” 
    b. Category: “appropriate category" 
    c. Once you do that, there should be an option that lets you “Request a call”/ “Start Email”

  • When I run the "App package information sample" and run Scenario 1, I get the following output, which is indeed what you are expecting, isn't it? Are you getting anything different than the below?

  • Yes I am getting different results. As mentioned, the package family name value mentioned in my manifest file is different from what I am receiving when I called Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.Current.Id.FamilyName.

    PLease let me know if I miss some thing here.

    Thanks.
