Why 'X' in tile corner? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Today, I noticed an 'X' in the lower right corner of some (not all) of my app tiles on the start page.  The apps seem to run as usual (except for the background task on one.)

    In opening one of the apps in VS, I found that my developer licenses needed to be renewed.  After renewing the license, and running the app in debug mode, the 'X' went away from the tile.

    Is this expected, and is there further documentation on this phenomenon?

  • I think you nailed it with your supposition here.

    I will ask if there is any documentation on this (I could not find any public docs).
