Associate App With Store Fails: Missing App Manifest RRS feed

  • Question

  • In VS 2012 Pro with a XAML+Direct3D C++ program, when I select Project->Store->Associate App with Store I get the following error dialog:

    Unable to associate your App with the Windows Store because the app manifest is missing. Add an app manifest to the project.

    Also note that Project->Store->Edit App Manifest is grayed out.

    I don't understand why I'm getting this error message. I have a dev account and there is a "Package.appxmanifest" in my project that I can edit. I also see "AppManifest.xml" in the ARM\Release\{app} directory.

    Anyone know why I'm getting this error message and/or how to fix it.

  • Aaron,

    I created a new "Direct2D (XAML)" app with VS2012, verified that it would properly associate with the Store, then brought over the source code from the failing solution, so I think I'm good to go.

    I don't know what went wrong with the other project. It was based on the original XAML+Direct3D template from the RC, so maybe something was wrong with it.
