  • Hi Dhananjay,

    Since there is not an 'appeals' process for certification test results, to get your app published, you would need to address the failure cited in the test results and re-submit.

  • The application title and icon needs to be set in code so it will show something distinct on both the start page and programs list page of the phone.  This can be done on the "properties" page of your application in Visual Studio.  (There are two titles and two icons you need to set on that page.)

    Install the XAP on either your phone or the emulator and look on the program list page and see that the name and icon are set.  Tap and hold on the icon on the program list page and use the "pin to start" option to have the program show up on the start page.  Check that page also for the application name and icon.

    The "expected result" is copied from the certification requirements and the "Comments" part of the message was the specific reason that it failed certification requirements.  

    Since the application failed in the first stage, there is a good chance that they did not do the complete testing for all other requirements.
