Microsoft Releases Developer Guide On Manually Packaging Apps For Windows Store.

Netflix has launched a new universal app for Windows 10, as the video-streaming giant becomes the latest in a line of companies to embrace Microsoft’s new operating system. Rebuilt from the ground up, the new Netflix app replaces the existing version in the Windows Store and though they’re not hugely different at first glance, the new app does sport a refreshed interface and some new integrations.

However, some third-party app developers who don’t have the right account credentials may have trouble packaging apps to be published on Windows Store. Moreover, what you’ll now find is a consistent experience across mobile and desktop, as the responsive design automatically optimizes to suit the form factor of the device it’s used on. When packaging apps using Visual Studio, the easiest way to do this is to use the “Create App Packages” wizard, which does it for you automatically. Your only other option is to select “No” and you’re told you can only use the resulting package “…on a computer that has a developer license installed…” Fortunately, there’s a work-around!

Developers can ensure the app is configured with the correct publisher and app information without having to sign into the publisher’s Store account. This does, however, require that the publisher delivers specific information to the developer that they will manually insert into the Visual Studio Manifest Designer before proceeding with the Create App Packages wizard.
