Renaming application

    Question

  • Hi.
    I want to rename my app. I've followed the steps here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/publish/manage-app-names#rename-an-app-that-has-already-been-published however when I build the app in Visual Studio it throws an error stating that I must use the original name.
    I also tried using the new option on VS Update 2 to create the packages with a new name, but when I do this, retrieving fetching the licensing information thorough "CurrentApp.LicenseInformation" fails with Exception from HRESULT: 0x803F6107.

    I've submitted a ticket to Microsoft but the reply is that I should post it here. Any help is appreciated.

  • It seems no one knows how to rename Windows apps (and their instructions don't work). Is there any other place I can reach to ask for help about this issue?
