Windows App Certification Kit ARM not executing on Surface RT

    Question

  • Hi!

    I am trying to verify my Windows Store App for Windows 8.1 (developed on VS 2013) on a Surface RT with Windows RT 8.1 Preview, using the Windows Application Certification Kit for ARM.  The problem is that I havent managed to run it not even a single time.

    1. I successfully installed the ARM Kits Policy Information

    1.1 To prove it, I ran the following command on the Surface, getting the shown result:

    PS C:\> Get-SecureBootPolicy 
    Publisher: 77fa9abd-0359-4d32-bd60-28f4e78f784b 
    Version  : 1 

    2. The Windows App Certification Kit shows under the Start menu but when I run it as Adminstrator I get an error that the digital certificate (signature, since I have the Surface RT in German) can not be verified; and therefore, never executes.

    Note: I dont have Visual Studio installed on the Surface and I didnt manage to install any standalone SDK yet my understanding is that within the ARM Kits Policy and SDK is already available.  Could someone confirm this?

    Any suggestions?

  • Hi Tabcina,

    You will need to upgrade your Surface to the release version of Windows RT 8.1. The certificate added by the ARM Kits Policy is not valid on the Preview OS.

  • Hi,

    As I mentioned earlier, I have already installed the ARM Kits Policy on the Surface RT.  Please see output Publisher after successful execution.  Yet:

    "2. The Windows App Certification Kit shows under the Start menu but when I run it as Adminstrator I get an error that the digital certificate (signature, since I have the Surface RT in German) can not be verified; and therefore, never executes."

    Any suggestion on how to overcome this error?
