Changing Publisher Display Name and updating package.appxmanifest RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I first created my account at the Partner Center, I used a publisher display name like "abc software". I created a new app at the center with that account. The app's publisher display name is also "abc software". In visual studio 2017, I associate my app with the one from the store and it has the same display name. I decided to change my publisher name to "abc software development". I did that at the Partner Center and it seemed to work. However, the display name associated with my app doesn't change. I actually deleted the app and recreated it and it still has the old display name. I created a completely new app and it too has the old name. How do I change the publisher display name and get visual studio to get the correct store association?

    What does Publisher display name show in the Account settings page(Settings/Developer settings/Account settings/Contact info)? What does the Package/Properties/PublisherDisplayName shows in the identity details page(Overview/app Name/App management/App identity/Identity details)?old name or new name?
    >However, the display name associated with my app doesn't change.
    Do you mean the PublisherDispalyName under the properties still show the old name?

  • It looks like the problem is fixed. I assumed the change I made would have had an immediate effect but I guess it took some time. All is good now.
