[uwp] Why advertisement is shown for a test values but not for real ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Advertisement control shows advertisement for test value successfully.

    I created ads for my app in the store.

    I associate app with live windows store app.
    App was published before and available in the store.

    Then I changes test ids on real windows store ad ids.

    When I run app ( associated with store ) on desktop. Ads is not visible.

    It got error:

    ErrorCode = NoAdAvailable
    ErrorMessage = "No ad available. No additional information"

    Q1: Why ?
    Q2: And how to test advertisement for real app before publishing ?

  • Hi SmartWhy,

    >>Q1: Why ?

    Real ApplicationId and AdUnitId value should apply from the published apps and it takes 1-2 days after that for ads from real units to start serving. So please check it after two days of your application.

    >>Q2: And how to test advertisement for real app before publishing ?
    The Windows Dev Center dashboard gives you the option to make your app available only to specified people so that you can have testers try it out before you offer it to the public.

    And for more details, you could refer to Beta testing and targeted distribution
