Creating App Packages RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've set up an account and everything to upload my application but when it comes to creating the application packages, I'm having some problems.

    On Visual Studio Ultimate 2012, I can create it and it is successful but during upload:

    Validation error:   This package wasn't built for the current version of Windows. Install the current version of Windows and build the package again.

    On Visual Studio Express and Premium, this is what I get during the validation process:

    Performance suspend
    • Error Found: The performance suspend test collected the following results:
      • Application Error: Application Suspend was not detected for application App. This could be because your application failed to suspend correctly. Please consider re-running the test avoid interacting with the application while tests are running.
    • Impact if not fixed: Application suspend time is important for creating a fast and fluid experience for the user. This app will not be accepted by the Windows Store.
    • How to fix: The app received a failing score. You should ensure that your app’s performance is consistent across different machine configurations. The informational metrics can provide insight into area that could help improve your app’s performance, but do not impact your apps acceptance by the Windows Store. 

    So, I am unable to upload it at all since the application package isn't created.

  • From the error it sounds like you may be using a pre-release version of Windows 8.

    You need to use the RTM versions of Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 in order to upload to the store.

    The suspend issue is different: for that take a look at your suspending code to make sure it doesn't hang, crash, etc. Can you reproduce any problems if you mimic suspend in the debugger?
