Windows Store Certification Issue: Certification failed API CryptProtectData in crypt32.dll is not supported for this application type RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have developed a windows store app, which requires encryption. as part of that we have used DPAPIAlgorithm by referring the below site:

    http://www.obviex.com/samples/dpapi.aspx

    but while publishing/uploading the application to windows store, I am getting an error as mentioned below:

    "Certification failed API CryptProtectData in crypt32.dll is not supported for this application type. W8Service.dll calls this API". please refer to the attached screenshot.

    Please let me know the reason why we should not use this API and what is the alternative solution for this.

    Thanks,

    Shilpa K
