add-appxpackage deployment failed with hresult 0x80080204


  • I'm trying to side load my app on another Win8 PC.

    when I try it on one - it works perfectly, but on another - it fails with deployment error -

    add-appxpackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80080204, The Appx package's manifest is invalid. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80080204)

    any idea what can be the issue?

  • found the problem - 

    the package was created on Windows 8.1 with VS 2013, and the computer I was trying to run it on was Windows 8.
