Error when uploading Windows Phone Silverlight 8.1 xap (Invalid package publisher name) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    i have a problem submitting a new update for my windows phone application.

    I recently upgraded my windows phone silverlight 8.0-app to a windows phone silverlight 8.1-app using visual studio 2015. Now i am trying to publish the new 8.1 xap-file as a new submission for my app.

    When I upload the XAP in windows dev center i get an error message saying that the package publisher name is wrong and expected to be empty:

    "Invalid package publisher name: CN=3CA5FD9A-XXX-XXX-XXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX (expected: )"

    The package publisher name I used is the same that is displayed on the app identity page.

    To make sure there is no problem with my upgraded solution I already tryed to make a new  windows phone silverlight 8.1-solution and just filled everything that is absolutely required. When I try to upload this almost empty XAP i also get the same error. So it seems that I can generally not upload a Windows Phone Silverlight 8.1 XAP to my app.

    Is there any advice on how to fix this issue? Thank you!
