  • Question

  • I am trying to upload a new app and when i'm uploading the package i get the error "Invalid package identity name: 946994c7-501f-4039-9de1-105e696db7d9 (expected: 2173LexiconSoftware.291464336355F)"

    I  don't know where in the package.manifest is the value for "package identity name"

  • Hi Kostas,

    I find you upload the Debug .xap file thus I think that you might have corrected the identity value as I suggest in .appxmanifest and run your project in Release mode in order to generate your package. But you upload the .xap under your Debug folder in which the identity value is still the same as your beginning so that the error persists.

    Now you might double check if all the value has been matching each other and then run your project in Release mode. Then in the submission page in Dashboard, browse the file like below and upload the Release .xap file.

    By the way, since Silverlight app is targeting on Windows Phone device family, you're supposed to choose ARM architecture instead of Any CPU. Although I have tried with "Any CPU" package and manage to upload it, it might still cause something wrong in app certification phase.

  • Hi kousinovalis, 

    Your issue is related to the Store and I know a better forum for it: "Submitting and Publishing Apps", let's move your case to there for better support.

  • Hi Kostas,
    When selecting Package.appxmanifest in Visual Studio, you could press F7 to open it in xml editor to view code. Then you could locate the Package Identity Name there and edit it to match the expected value.
     
    Before create your package, please remember to associate your app with the Store to sync the app identity info.
    More details, please see View app identity details.

  • How do you "associate your app with the Store"?

    Kostas Kousinovalis

  • Hi Kostas,

    From the Project menu in your Visual Studio solution, choose "Store > Associate App with the Store". You have to login in your developer account and select the app name you have reserved in your Dashboard to complete the association.

    After you associate your app with the Store, these values are downloaded to the app manifest file for the current project on your local machine:

      • Package Display Name
      • Package Name
      • Publisher ID
      • Publisher Display Name
      • Version

    Best regards,

  • The Visual Studio version is 2015 Professional Update 3, but the app is Silverlight that's why the menu is not showing.

    What are we do in this situation?

  • Hello,

    I have made a test in my side and fortunately I can reproduce the same issue as yours. And I note that you modify your app Display Name in your package.appmanifest too.

    If fact, Display Name is different from App Identity Name, you have to make sure it same as the app name in your Dashboard. And you'd better keep your app project name the same as app name in Dashboard too. I have managed to upload my Silverlight app since I modify the value based on the error indication.

    So please sync the Display Name and modify your app following error prompt to have a try again.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,

    Mattew Wu
