In this article I will talk about Publisher Id issue while uploading app in Windows Store. In my last article I talked about Creating App Packages and Running Windows App Certification Kit. Now app is ready to be submitted to Windows Store.
Almost my all article are in steps, this will be in terms of Remember instead of Steps.
Remember 1: Reserve your app name when you are ready with your app idea, it will help you to create project with right name (the name of project and the name of reserved app name will be same).
Remember 2: This is important, once app is packaged and Windows App Certification Kit is run, right click on Project, go to store and select Associate App with Store..
On selecting Associate App with Store... below screen will appear.
After signing it with the same user name of Windows Store, you will get below Window. Check include app names that already have packages.
You will see the reserved app name. Select the app and click on Next which will bring the below window. Now click on Associate and you will get below window with Package Display Name, Application Display Name, Package Name, Published Id and Publisher Display Name.
If you don't do above things, your app load will fail.
Important: You can change rest of the things by opening Package.appxmanifest but you can't change Publisher Id. Published Id will be disabled in design mode, it is editable in xml mode. Even though you put the correct publisher Id, it will revert to your computer name as soon as your create package. One need to Associate App with the Store... to update the Publisher Id in Package.appxmanifest.
This ends the article of associating Publisher Id with app of Windows Store.
