Apps which Support Windows 7.5 only question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I developed and submitted an app which was targeted to support Windows 7.5.

    The app was tested against the targeted OS (7.5) and functioned as expected under the supported OS.

    The app was developed and submitted for certification just prior to the release of Windows Phone 8.

    I received  certification feedback from Microsoft indicating certification did not pass because they tested it against an unsupported OS  (Windows Phone 8 device).

    My question is: Is it possible to submit an app which only supports Windows Phone 7.5 to the Windows Phone store now that Windows Phone 8 is available? If so, how should I specify the supported OS in the app submission form?

  • As of yet, there's no option in the Dev Center to opt out of 8.0 distribution. You should review your test results and ensure that the failure wasn't actually for the app not performing on low memory devices (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh855081(v=vs.92).aspx).

    If you need to opt out 8.0 of 8.0 distribution, please submit a ticket and we will get back to you within one business day.

    Thanks
