Possible to use the Windows App Certification Kit with only the current project? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The gathering of system informations takes way to long everytime I want to check my app. Is there a way to check a specific app without querying all the installed apps?

  • Visual studio gives you the option to run the WACK after creating a new package (Right click on project, Store -> Create App Package).  When Visual Studio launches the WACK in this way, it does not query the system for all installed apps.

  • Another option is to run the WACK tool from command line.

  • Thanks Dave! I wonder if its possible to run only certain validations on the app package, like only the API checks. It takes too long to have the whole app checked every time.

  • Hi Phil,

    No that is not an option.

  • Sorry for waking up a dead body...

    But how much is that "long"?
