UWP: Icon assets must be provided in appropriate resolutions for all targeted devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • My  C++ UWP app produced using Visual Studio 2017 has been rejected twice from the Microsoft Store with message:

    App Policies: 10.1.4 Icon

    Notes To Developer

    Icon assets must be provided in appropriate resolutions for all targeted devices. For information on creating and providing the appropriate icon assets, please see this page: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/design/shell/tiles-and-notifications/app-assets

    I am using the Asset Generator in the Visual Assets tab of the Package.appxmanifest file. Isn't it supposed to generate all the required icons? What am I missing?

  • I contacted the review team and they said the following:

    "If you generated your icons using Visual Studio, you would need to delete the icons you have and recreate them in Visual Studio. Make sure to uncheck the “apply recommended padding” option because this resizes all your icons and adds the borders around them."

    So I unchecked 'apply recommended padding' in the Visual Assets tab. Secondly, I noticed that in the Assets folder, two icons were being left as the default cross icon, namely LockScreenLogo.scale-200.png and StoreLogo.backup.png. I manually changed them.

    The submission was approved, so either one or both of these steps corrected the issue.

  • Hi Tom,

    The UWP Visual Assets Generator creates all the visual assets needed for an UWP app, you'd better read the article provided by the link.

    After reading the articles, could you rebuild the project and select the proper picture to try again?

    Best Regards
