Update existing WP8.1 app - unexpected versions

    Question

  • is the windows app dev Dashboard experiencing troubles atm?

    i wanted to submit an update to my WP8.1 app (with App-ID c59de80c-ee2a-4a8e-9cc3-0e094407be08).
    existing app has version 1.1.0.8 so i wanted to update it to 1.1.0.9 but that's not possible.

    every time i try to upload the newly created app package i get the following:

    the string "1523" does not exist in any project file. neither "3469" or "1107".  regarding to package.appxmanifest it should be 1.1.0.11 atm (auto-increment in VS13 via Store --> Create App Packages).

    a) what is this?

    b) when will this be working again ???

  • solved.

    removed whole "AppPackages" Folder & changed from "bundels if needed" to "never", then rebuild solution and package.

    but i still find it very, very strange.

  • ok, 24 hours later - still not working.

    the windows cert kit lists the version info correct as 1.1.0.9:

    but again i get the very same "version" when i submit the package to the windows phone store.

    i don't think the problem is on my side - the version string in dev center dashboard simply is the date/time string info of the time of upload.

    i don't want to replace Version 1.1.0.8 with Version 2014.1108.1315.196 - no.

  • It sounds like you were looking at the version for the appxbundle not for your appx package.  2014.1108.1315.196 is an expected version number for the appxbundle created on 8 November 2014.

    If you look at the packages installed in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps you'll see that many include both a normal app package (with a low version) and a bundle package (with a date-based version).

  • yes I agree that is a version for the appxbundle but the version of the appxbundle is the version that is shown in the windows phone store page. Is this a bug?

  • It's unclear what you mean.

  • I mean that the windows phone store instead of the dll version it shows the appxbundle version.
