"Unable to build an app package because the app manifest is invalid. Correct the errors in the app manifest"

    Question

  • I'm getting this error when I click Project > Create App Packages ...

    The solution Builds without issue (Release).  I don't see any issues in the manifest.  Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot?

    VS2013 Pro, 12.0.31101.00 Update 4.

    After a full uninstall and reinstall of Visual Studio, it started working again. "Repair" didn't do the trick.  Not sure what the root cause was, but issue is resolved.

  • Hi Scrump,

    Have you tried creating a new blank windows store app project and then creating app package? Does it work? This can help us to determine if this problem is caused by visual studio. If it can work, I think there is something incorrect in the manifest file in your project. Here is a page shows how to troubleshootds,l have questions, please post more information about your scenario.

    ntials in client app and then transmitte those crede packaging, have a look at the following link. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/hh973484(v=vs.85).aspx. Try finding more information about this scenario and post them here.
