Strange Package.appxmanifest error.

    Question

  • Well I had my app 100% ready to roll-out, after working on it for many weeks, just before uploading there was this update for VS12 (I'm using Express version). I though "should be ok?!?".  After installing & restarting I went to upload to store and kept getting this error Access denied. Maybe it didn't like the fact that I was logged into Windows 8 under one account but my developer a/c had different credentials.  So I rolled the update back.

    Now when trying to run the app in VS12Eexpress  I have this mysterious error in the .appxmanifest which tells me I must have a particular Package name and Publisher ID from my dev account.  When I check (as these haven't been changed since starting the app over 4 weeks ago) it seems they are the correct values, the values that should be there.  Maybe I'm reading the errors wrong, here's a copy of the errors minus my Dev.a/c number:

    Error 1 The Name attribute of the Identity element in the app manifest must have the Package name value of the selected app: 'RRInteractive.Excel2013ChartTutorials'. E:\...\Excel 2013 Charts\FixedLayout\package.appxmanifest 3 13 FixedLayout

    Error 2 The Publisher attribute of the Identity element in the app manifest must have the value of the Publisher ID value from your developer account: XX=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx. E:\...\Excel 2013 Charts\FixedLayout\package.appxmanifest 3 76 FixedLayout

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Can you try and run through store association again? "Store -> Associate App with the Store..."

  • I have the Error 2. in VS13. I closed the VS and restarted. Then do store association. And worked.
