Doesn’t have permission to use the "restrictedcapabilities" namespace and submit apps converted with the Desktop Bridge RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have converted a desktop app to the windows app using the DesktopAppConverter, but when i submit this app to the windows app store, i encounter the following errors:

    1>包接受验证错误: 你无权在包 xxx.appx 的 appx 清单文件中指定以下命名空间: http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/manifest/foundation/windows10/restrictedcapabilities

    2>包接受验证错误: Your developer account doesn’t have permission to submit apps converted with the Desktop Bridge at this time. https://aka.ms/desktopbridgeforwindowsstore

    In the AppxManifest.xml file, i find the namespace:


    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <Package xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/manifest/foundation/windows10" xmlns:uap="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/manifest/uap/windows10" xmlns:uap2="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/manifest/uap/windows10/2" xmlns:uap3="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/manifest/uap/windows10/3" xmlns:rescap="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/manifest/foundation/windows10/restrictedcapabilities" xmlns:desktop="http://schemas.microsoft.com/appx/manifest/desktop/windows10">
      <Identity Name="xxx" ProcessorArchitecture="x64" Publisher="CN=TorchSUN" Version="" />
        <Resource Language="en-us" />
        <TargetDeviceFamily Name="Windows.Desktop" MinVersion="10.0.14393.0" MaxVersionTested="10.0.14393.0" />
      <rescap:Capability Name="runFullTrust" />
        <Application Id="xxx" Executable="xxx.exe" EntryPoint="Windows.FullTrustApplication">
          <uap:VisualElements DisplayName="xxx" Description="xxx" BackgroundColor="#777777" Square150x150Logo="title150x150.png" Square44x44Logo="title44x44.png" />
          <Extensions />


    but this AppxManifest.xml file is automatically generated by the DeskAppConverter,i try to remove following lines and use the MakeAppx.exe to pack the .appx file,


     <rescap:Capability Name="runFullTrust" />

    then i encounter this error:"the element specified requires "runFullTrust" capability,

    this app is used to display the sensor's data and i know i cann't use the restrictedcapabilities namespce from following link about "App capability declarations"


    but i don't know how to fix it, does anyone know this issue?

    For the second error:Your developer account doesn’t have permission to submit apps converted with the Desktop Bridge at this time.

    After i submit my information to this website:


    i need to wait the MS's feedback, am i right?

  • Hi Qingliang,

    For the second error, you need to wait for a Microsoft representative to contact you.

    >i know i cann't use the restrictedcapabilities namespce from following link about "App capability declarations"

    For the first error, since the Manifest file is created automatically by DesktopAppConverter tool, you're not able to edit it manually.

    So you may apply for the permission to use it before submitting your app following the steps below:

    • Determine if you are eligible to submit your app to the store with a specific restricted capability by looking at the table below (you can check the table in the last documentation). If you are not eligible, any requests you make will be denied.
    • If you are eligible visit the Submitting an App support page.
    • Set the problem type to App submission and certification and the category type to Submitting an app using a restricted capability.
    • Include the capability you are requesting access to and include a reason for your request. If you do not provide all the information necessary, your request will be denied. You may also be asked to provide more information.
    *The reviewing process will take around 5 business day or longer. Please submit your request before submitting app to the Store.

    More details, please see Special and restricted capability.
