Updating a Windows Phone 8.1 App

    Question

  • Hi

    I'm a little uncertain. I want to push an update to an existing app (new appxupload/appx file) to the store. I've read through the documentation at:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj631569%28v=vs.105%29.aspx

    And it states that, to my knowledge, I should either "Replace" the existing *.appx, or hit "Add new". The "Replace" option doesn't exist on my *.appx though, it's replaced by "...". I can't use "Add new" either - when I try to upload the new package (with increased version number), it tells me that I can only have one appx at the same time.

    This leaves me with only one option: deleting my existing *.appx first. I'm not sure however if this will have any impact on the live version in the store (will it become unavailable?), or if this is the intended way of doing it. Am I just doing something wrong? What's the suggested workflow here?

    Thanks, answers would be much appreciated.
