Old tile notifications and badge number still display when I uninstall and then re-install a same app.

    Question

  • Hi,

    When I testing my app, I find a problem that the old tile notifications and badge number still display on start screen when I uninstall my app and re-install it.

     I think that if an app was uninstalled, all data should be removed. And if re-install the app, it will be a new clean one.

    The problem can be reproduced using MSDN Sample: App tiles and badges sample. And the problem is only reproduced on Windows 8.1.

  • Hi Lattimore,

    I cannot reproduce the issue, after I uninstall the app and reinstall it, all the tiles notifications are removed.

    I tested with Scenario two, the colored image display, I uninstall the app by right click and choose "Uninstall" on the start screen, then redeploy the app, there is no old tiles any more.
