[UWP] WinAppDeployCmd fails with 0x80070005 - Unspecified error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi. We're unable to deploy our signed appxbundle to both a Nokia Lumia 635 and a Nokia Lumia 950 XL running Windows 10 Mobile RTM (10.0.10586.11). We have Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 installed. See below for the output we get. The app bundle successfully deploys to a Nokia Lumia 520 running the same version of Windows 10 Mobile, but fails with the other devices. Note that this is a product published through Microsoft Studios, and hence we're using a Microsoft Corporation certificate to sign the bundle.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    WinAppDeployCmd install -file <AppBundleName>.appxbundle -ip -pin D4x9g1

  • Hello Jesse,

    0x80070005 always means access denied:

    I guess that your device may failed due to the following:

    "To run the app, the Windows 10 Mobile device must be in developer mode or already have the certificate installed."

    Best regards,
