Separate Builds WP8(xap) Metro ARM(appx) & Metro x86(appx) does not get accepted on new dashboard


  • I've my games on windowsphone store serving Windows Phone 8/8.1. Now I'm converting it for Windows ARM and x86. The WACK test is cleared but when I upload the new appx (for ARM or x86), it produces following errors:

    This package uses a display name that you have not reserved: AppName

    Invalid package identity name: AppName expected (expected: 14859AppS*********)

    Invalid package family name: AppName expected (CrazyCarSt****) . Now the problem is, in Package.appxmanifest has package family name created by default and I cannot change it to Windows phone package family name as it is not editable. I'm stuck at this poiunt and any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you

  • Hi. Right click on the Package.appxmanifest and select Open With Xml Text editor. Then key in your Identity Name, Publisher ID, Product ID. Save and close it. Reopen the package.appmanifest and you should see that the family name will now be the same as your store name submission.
