Problem with app: approved, but crashes. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have made an app  (WP7.1) that uses streaming audio, it was approved after 2 rejections. However when downloaded and installed the app just crashes (on lumia820/WP8: chrashes instantly) or doesn't work (lumia800/WP7, it loads and the buttons/pages work, except for the playbutton where clicks are ignored.)

    So basically I need to debug an error, but i have some problems reproducing it:

    The app works on my dev-machine and phones, it works (hopefully) when MS is testing it, but when I and the users download it it doesn't work (thats what they write in the reviews at least).

    I have tried to submit the same app as a beta app, I can download it but it does not install using the app-deploy tool.

    We have removed the app from the store since it didn't work, but the beta is here:


    Is there any way to get the beta to install and run?

    Is there something else I can try, to get around the submission wait period (i.e. test without going through the MS-approval process) and get an app where i can replicate the errors?

    There might be some more info in these 2 stackoverflow posts:



    Trying to work around it:


    Thanks in advance :)

  • It could be that you left a call to "LaunchForTest" in your code.

    Or one of the capabilities that you require was stripped from the WMAppManifest.xml because a reference was not found in your base assembly.

    For the second part, unzip the signed XAP file that you downloaded and review what capabilities are in the WMAppManifest.xml.
