  • The list coutries by group can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windowsphone/develop/hh184842(v=vs.92).aspx

    You have two options. You need to first go back to Application Submission for your application. To do that, click "Complete" from the lifecycle page for your application.

    Once you are there, you can go to the App info page and select "Distribute to all markets except those with stricter content rules." That will cause your application to not be distributed into any countries with stricter content rules (including Group 1).

    If you want to just exclude Group 1, you can go do the "Market selection and custom pricing" page within Application Submission and exclude just those specific countries.

    I hope this helps!

  • So we actually have a meaning for Group 1 now!  That's taken a very long time.  Could that documentation be extended to include the meanings of the other groups?  There is obviously an internal list that the certification team uses.

    Group 1: China (no Facebook or Twitter permitted, Bing Maps not supported)

    Group 2: Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia (??? not permitted)

    Group 3: Bahrain, Iraq, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates (religious references I'm guessing, ??? something else?)
