UWP app update from Windows Store is not replacing the currently running app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

           We are trying to achieve a UWP app update for an app that is already running on Raspberry Pi 3 with Windows IoT Core OS.

           We deploy the OS with a version of the UWP app and run it as the default app which works fine. But when we push an updated version of that app on the windows store and when that update is downloaded from the windows store (after 3 to 5 hours), it installs it as another app with the same name instead of updating the older version. So we are left with 2 versions - old and new of an app with the same name but it clearly shows the updates with the old and new versions under "C:\Data\Programs\WindowsApps\".

           Please advise.

    Kind Regards,

    Shridhar Iyer

  • Shridhar,

    Would you mind sharing with my the PreInstall kit you downloaded from DevCenter? I'd like to repro this, my email is trevonmatmsft@outlook.com.
