.appxupload file is not created by msbuild if Visual Studio 2015 Update 2 is installed RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed VS 2015 Update 2 and now msbuild does not create the .appxupload file for a Windows 10 App (Universal App) any more.

    To reproduce the error you need to do the following:

    - Create a Universal App in VS 2015 with Update 2

    - Execute msbuild with the following paramters

    msbuild "c:\...\mysolution.sln" /p:AppxBundlePlatforms="x86|x64|ARM" /p:AppxPackageDir="C:\test\\" /p:AppxBundle=Always /p:Configuration=release

    I also tried the switch with /p:AppxPackageIsForStore=true but does not have any effect.

    Thanks for your help. In the meantime I uninstalled Update 2 and reinstalled VS 2015 with Update 1 and everythink is working as expected.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks, Bernhard

  • Hi BernhardE,

    Instead of "/p:AppxPackageIsForStore=true" use new flag "/p:UapAppxPackageBuildMode=StoreUpload"

    I encountered the same problem when following your steps, maybe this issue is related to the Update 2. I suggest that you could report this error herefor better support.
