Error in VS2013 update 2: Task 'GenerateAppxManifest' failed. Access is denied. _

    Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I have a problem last two days when i try to run my Windows 8 Store app from Visual Studio 2013 update 2.

    Something like this has never happend to me before. But two days ago I formatted my whole HDD on my laptop, and installed VS2013 update2, and when I try to debug my app it shows me an error:Task 'GenerateAppxManifest' failed. Access is denied.

    I don't know even where to start looking for a solution, because my AppxManifest is the same as it was 5 days ago when i published my app to the Store.

    Thank you in advance,
    Ivan

  • Hello,

    I've tried the solution you've provided me, but unfortunately it didn't work. 
    However, I made a workaround:

    I created a new empty Windows Store solution in Visual Studio 2013, and then I added the old files (xamls, CS files, images, etc) into the new solution and it builded normally.

    Please try the steps to see whether can solve your problem:

    1.Open Package.appxmanifest

    2.Goto Packaging tab

    3.Open tools->Create GUID->copy the new Package name GUID->Registry format without the angle brackets
