  • Could you elaborate on the steps you followed both to create the appx package and the output from the Add-AppxDevPackage.bat on the client. Where did you see the error surface?

  • I am also getting this.

    Steps to reproduce:

    - Windows 8 Developer Preview

    Create new Metro Style JavaScript App

    Store -> Create App Package... OK

    - Deploy on Windows 8 Developer Preview: OK

    - Deploy on Windows 8 Customer Preview: Error:

    "The Appx Package manifest is invalid."

    +=categoryInfo -not specified.

    +=FullQualifiedErrorId - DeploymentError.

  • Ftduarte,

    You will need to update and rebuild your project to run it on the Consumer Preview. See the sticky thread Migrating Windows 8 Developer Preview code to Consumer Preview for help.

    In the future please create a new thread for new questions rather than repurposing an old one.
