[UWP]sendSms capability not available under Visual Studio 2015 on Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was developing an application for Windows (UWP) but Visual Studio 2015 doesn't let me use the sendSms capability in package manifest. 

    The 'Name' attribute is invalid - The value 'sendSms' is invalid according to its datatype '' - The Enumeration constraint failed.

    Is there any category that is allowed to use these capabilities? Because I can still use the locationHistory (that comes in the same category of capabilities) but not this one.

    The error is correct. There is no "sendSms" capability. I suspect you were looking for the "smsSend" restricted capability. See
