SignTool Error: An unexpected internal error has occurred. (0x80080209) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to sign appx file, but have this error:

    SignTool Error: An unexpected internal error has occurred.
    Error information: "Error: SignerSign() failed." (-2146958839/0x80080209)


    Any idea what it means?

    EDIT:

    I found that the error means: The SIP_SUBJECTINFO structure used to sign the package didn't contain the required data

    But how to fix it?

  • Ok... so I found that I was probably using some wrong signtool.exe. I found location of the tool which is used with the DesktopAppConverter in its log. In my case it is:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.16299.0\x64\signtool.exe"

    With this file the signing is successful.
