Metro APP with Identify Name starting with '-' dash character facing issue in launching.

    Question

  • I have a Metro APP that has Package Name as: ---xxx.---.xxxx This Metro APP is in Javascript. If I add a resource.resjson to this Metro APP and then deploy and launch the metro app , the app fails with error that resource not found. If I do not have the initial '-' dash characters it works. i.e. if the Identify Name is xxx.---.xxxx it works. It fails even if the name starts with a single '-' dash character. Can you please help me!

  • Why is it a requirement for you to start a name of your app with a "-"? Can't you start without the dash character?

    I am checking to see if there are any restrictions around starting an app name (Package Name field of package.appxmanifest file) without a dash character.

    Thanks,

    Prashant.

  • I need to start by a dash due to some internal organization policies. Of course there is no restriction in not starting with a dash.

    If I create a JS Metro APP project and then add a string resource ( resjson) and change the Package Name to start by a '-' dash then it just does not deploy.
