Failing Package Upload not matching family name RRS feed

  • Question

  • On the second submission of my app the package is failing submission with Invalid package family name.  What calculates package family name? The product identity page indicates that the family name is not declared in the manifest.  How do I fix or get around this?

  • Hi,

    The package family name is computed from the package name and hashed info. It is not edited directly. It is generated automatically after the association. 

    When you associate your app with the store via the Project.Store.Associate app with the store... menu these will be set to match the app name, etc. in your store account. 

    Please double check if the account that associated with the app is the correct account.

    Best regards,
