Package Name Identity assigned it's not what I choosed.

    Question

  • For my first app I choosed a Package Name that was like MyName.MyAppName but when I reserved the name of the app through the Windows Store publish tool, it was assgined a name with a prefix of 5 numbers (e.g. 12345MyName.MyAppName instead of MyName.MyAppName)
    Why is it so? And there's a way to change it?

  • You cannot change your package name; it is never shown to customers, so there won't be an impact that the end user can see. The prefix exists to help guarantee uniqueness.

  • Thanks for the answer. I noticed later the same happened to the version number of my app:

    Version

    2014.528.820.2687
    Instead of the version that I put in the package.manifest (1.0.0.7)

    When I upload the package, I can't change the version number (the fields are grayed-out and read only).
    Is there a way to change this behaviour or also this "is working as intended"?

    Thanks again!
