Deploying universal application results in "package could not be registered"

    Question

  • Hello all,

    We recently upgraded to the new Visual Studio and subsequently Windows Phone 8.1 preview. However when trying to deploy to the device or Windows Phone emulators(any of them), we get this error(0xx80073CF6).

    My phone is already developer unlocked. We have been successful in deploying it and running the application once, but now for some undetermined reason, it has stopped allowing us to do this.

    I am willing to provide any more information if I can.

  • We just got it to deploy, the issue stemmed from this guy's problem: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/4814236e-ee7b-4f0e-aabf-35062db4aabc/deploy-of-universal-app-fails-on-emulator?forum=WindowsPhonePreviewSDK

    Basically we had to force the application to realize that the images needed to be set. The manifest gives no warning and it seems to be the issue. Without that image it gives a fail to register.

  • 1) Does the app work correctly in the emulator?

    2) Did you review the etl file that the error message describes?

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • 1) It gave the same error when trying to deploy to both the phone and to any of the listed emulators.
    2) We did review it, and it was just a blank Info file. I can provide this file if you want but  from what I saw, there was one Information line showing in the events, and it was blank.
