Same product id

    Question

  • How do I make sure that when I create a Universal App to replace a Windows Phone 7 app that the product ids align and people who have bought the WP7 version, get free access to the UA version(s) - both phone and Windows.

  • Hi John,

    As I know, we can use the same reserved name for an app you submit to both windows store and windows phone store, thus this allows a customer to share the product in both store app and phone app. You can see more information in the following page. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn646927.aspx. Try submitting a new release of app, see more from http://blogs.msdn.com/b/cdnstudents/archive/2013/05/10/how-to-update-your-app-in-the-windows-8-store.aspx.

    Please feel free to let me know if you have any concerns.

    Regards,

  • Thanks Herro, but this WP7 was released before we had the option of reserving a name and since then someone has reserved the name. I was quick in reserving names, but not quick enough in this case. When they started reserving names, preference was not given to those already uing the names.

  • Maybe you can reserve a new name used for your app.

  • The problem appears to be that there is missing information on the existing app. So even if I choose a different new name, it will still be compared to blank. With almost 4K downloads, I do not want to break the link to the old app. What would be useful would be to allow a publisher to edit existing their apps That were approved before name approval was introduced.

    Being able to edit publisher information would also be useful. I seem to have acquired a variety of publisher names and ids.
