  • hello,

    could you try creating a metro app in a simple directory like c:\test\app2...etc to see if it related to the localized username?

    much appreciated,

  • Did you change your user account you use to log into the OS with? Do you get this error when you create and package a brand new project?

  • Using account A, can you try to invoke SignTool.exe directly on the command line and see if you get the same error? To do that, you can open a command prompt then type in the SignTool command. For information on the SignTool commands, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8s9b9yaz%28v=VS.80%29.aspx

    If you're more comfortable in your native language, please feel free to respond in that language instead. We'll work to translate the response. Thank you.
