Publisher issue of Metro Application with C++ language

    Question

  • When I create a Metro App with C++ language and modify the publisher to my company info, and then build it, I find the package uses an other specific string for the publisher. Such as "CN= Microsoft Corporation".  I check it by reading AppxManifest.xml file located in the Output Directory, "$(OutDir)".  Is this a known issue?

  • Hello,

    Do you want to change the publisher name?

    The publisher specified in the subject field of the signing certificate used to sign the package. This is a string that contains a comma-delimited X.500 distinguished name.

    If you want to change it, you should change the certificate. Also you can create a test certificate with another name.

    Double click Package.appxmanifest->Packaging->Publisher->Choose Certificate

    In this dialog you can choose Certificate from file or create a test Certificate.
