Wack don't see my app neither from gui, nor command line, nor from visual studio create package dialog

    Question

  • Hi.

    Could You explain- what's wrong with me or my win8 or my metro application?

    When I try to start WACK gui from the start panel of my windows8 , wack show only official Microsoft applications like "Reader", "XBOX" and etc. No one application which was loaded from marketplace wasn't in the list.

    When I start build apppackage (vs11=>project->store-> create app package-> create package use local only), package location "F:\src\SychevIgorTFS\sychevigorwin8apps\Sravni.MobileClients.Windows8\Sravni.MobileClients.Windows8\AppPackages\" build configuration- neutral release- package build success, but when after I press the button " launch wack " and press ok in UAC. in console I can see -1 - package is missing

    I already try start certification from the console and write something like that, but result was the same.

  • Hello,

    ould you check the following

    1) Open a powershell window
    2) Do a “Get-AppxPackage > out.txt”
    3) Open out.txt and look at InstallLocation field of all the apps installed.
    4) For the apps whose InstallLocation is blank, do a “Remove-AppxPackage <packageFullName>”

    There is a bug with the Consumer Preview list where the appcertkitui doesn't list all the packages installed if it encounters a package with a blank Installlocation.

    much appreciated,

    mike

  • What if we can't remove them? I am getting the following:

    Remove-AppxPackage : Deployment failed with HRESULT: 0x80073CFA, Removal failed. Please contact your software vendor
    Could not remove ae13515c-b6da-4a78-93a4-aa5cff0ccb83 because the current user does not have that package installed.
    Use Get-AppxPackage to see the list of packages installed.
    NOTE: For additional information, look for [ActivityId] f1748c4a-39c6-0000-72af-74f1c639cd01 in the Event Log or use
    the command line Get-AppxLog -ActivityID f1748c4a-39c6-0000-72af-74f1c639cd01
