  • Hi,

    I have a WP7.1 app on the store and i'm now trying to update the app with a Windows phone 8.1 package.

    I've associated the app with the store and when i'm trying to upload the appx package i'm getting these validation errors.

  • Hello ptwindev,

    The package family name is pulled from your application’s manifest file when you submit. Please ensure that it reflects your app identity information prior to submitting. If this does not help to guide you appropriately or isn’t the underlying issue, please create a request with us here through your developer account so we may assist you. Thank you!
