Converting App to windows phone 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I performed an conversion of my App to Windows Phone 8 within Visual Stuido 2012.  Seemed to work pretty good.  But, when I installed this app on my device I now have the app 2 times on my phone!  I have the older windows phone 7 app and the converted windows phone 8 app.  

    Yiks!  I expected one app!

    I figured when I converted it would just replace the currently installed windows 7 app.  What happens if I submit this to the market?  Will my customers just get the update or is this going to be a completely new install and likewise their data will not be migrated.  That would not be good  Any advice?

    Thanks!

  • Wahh!  That's nasty.  VS changed the Product ID during conversion to OS8.  Not really funny.  Thanks for that, seems to be working now.
