Cannot create one pfx file to make a game for Windows Store app.

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I am making a game with Unity 3D and then I want to build it for Windows Store Apps and I have to create one MetroTestCertificate,pfx to Publish it for Windows Store through Unity 3D software but when I want to create this certificate, I cannot do it, I got the following error

    Copying file failed (2)
    Copying
    C:/Users/Alejandro/reign-unity-plugin/Assets/MetroTestCertificate.pfx
    to Temp.StagingArea/MetroTestCertificat.pfx

    I spoke with the Unity 3D support and it seems that the windows 8.1 do not let create(and copy) this MetroTestCertificat.pfx for any reason I do not understand, for it, Could anybody help me to fix this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    Alejandro

  • Can you explain your scenario in more detail? How are you using "MetroTrstCertificate.pfx"? That isn't a standard file used for Windows Store apps.

    Typically you don't need to fiddle with pfxes at all. Visual Studio will generate a test cert automatically when building for testing. Microsoft will sign the apprehend it is published through the store.

    You only need to do your own signing if you are going to use enterprise side loading, which is unlikely for a game.

  • Hi Rob,

    First, thanks for your fast answer.

    Answering to your question about my scenario, let me explain a little better it.

    I am making games by Unity 3D (2D and 3D games) for Windows 8 Phone and Windows 8 Store.

    After I complete the games, I have set its PLAYER SETTINGS and then I have that build (or build and run) the game.

    To build a Windows 8 Store game , I have one Publishing tab and I have that create one Publisher Certificate ( fill in the name publisher and the password) and the Unity3D software create one Default Certificate named MetroTestCertificate.pfx.

    Hope this make sense for you.......

    For it and I like I said before, when I want to create this pfx file I got the error

    Copying file failed (2)

    Copying
    C:/Users/Alejandro/reign-unity-plugin/Assets/MetroTestCertificate.pfx
    to Temp.StagingArea/MetroTestCertificat.pfx

    and according to the Unity support, the problem seems be from Windows ( maybe I have that create the MetroTestCertificate permission before from Windows or Visual Studio or another thing.....)

    Thanks for your help again
