Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise crashes while publishing to store RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    each time I try to publish by using VS2015 to the Microsoft Store using the Associate App (Solution Explorer->Right click->Store->Associate App to Store, Visual Studio crashes.  This has not always been the case.  2-3 months ago, this was a non issue.  could tackle the task just fine.  Even building a new VM, installing VS2015 and trying this technique, the result is the same.  VS gets to the part where I select the existing app name and go to the summary screen.  As soon as I click Associate, VS crashes.

    I have attached the error in hopes someone else has run across this.  I see some old forums out there suggesting to flush any cache, but this occurs on a brand new Windows 10, VS2015 install.
